Carter's day concluded on a very high note and freshmen Prince-Tyson Gulley capped the final Orange TD on 8-yard with 4:14 remaining.
Freshman outside linebacker Marquis Spruill led SU's defense with 12 tackles, middle linebacker Derrell Smith contributed with 11 tackles, and free safety Philip Thomas and linebacker Doug Hogue added 10 tackles each. Cornerback Mike Holmes had 9 tackles and intercepted a pass registering a terrific 42-yard return. Holmes had two nifty kick returns for a combined 44 yards.
After a week off, SU begins Big East Conference play next Saturday at noon when it plays South Florida (under first-year head coach Skip Holtz) in Tampa.
