SYRACUSE, N. Brice McCain Jersey .Y. -- First-year Syracuse coach Dino Babers got the signature win he was looking for.The biggest thing about this win is that any time you take over a program you trying to get everybody to buy in, youre trying to get everybody to work as one, Babers said after the Orange beat No. 17 Virginia Tech 31-17 on Saturday for their first victory over a ranked opponent since 2012.No matter how hard everybody wants to do that, theres always the naysayers, theres always the ones who say, `Maybe we should be doing it the way the old people, the old team did or the old coaches did it. Its always that way until you get that one win that solidifies you, that brings you together, that hardship that brings the family closer together. Thats what happened today. Were now family.The Orange offense rolled up 561 yards on the nations third-ranked defense, converted four of five fourth-down opportunities, and one that didnt fold when the Hokies came back to tie it.A lot of it comes down to looking at the structure of defenses, were looking at situations. Were not reckless, Babers said. We dont just go out on fourth down and say were gambling. Thats not what we do.Uncharacteristically, Syracuse scored 14 straight points after the Hokies rallied. Under similar scenarios this season, the bottom would have fallen out. Not this timeWe went back to the things that worked, Babers said. We knew they were going to be pressing, were just playing. We wanted to get into the fourth quarter where we had a chance to win the game.The key was quarterback Eric Dungey, who accounted for 417 yards and two touchdowns as Syracuse (3-4, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat No. 17 Virginia Tech (4-2, 2-1 ACC) 31-17 on Saturday for its first victory over a ranked opponent since 2012.Dungey was 28 of 53 for 311 yards and ran for a career-high 106 yards. Knocked out of the game for one play, Dungey became the Orange player to throw for 300 yards and run for 100 yards in a single game.He scored on a 1-yard sneak to give the Orange a 24-17 lead with 7:56 to go, and hit Erv Phillips on a 58-yard scoring play in the first quarter.Coach (Sean) Lewis and Coach Babers did a good job all week. They helped to put us in situations to put some points up, Dungey said.The Orange also featured a defense that played its most inspired game of the year, holding the Hokies to its lowest output of the season. Coming into Saturdays game off a 34-3 win over North Carolina, Virginia Tech had averaged 39.4 points per game, third in the ACC and 25th nationally.For the defense, all week coach has been saying, `Why not us? This week he kept drilling in us, `Why cant we be great? I felt the guys really took that to heart and we came out feeling like we had nothing to lose, said defensive lineman Dejon Wilson, who recovered a fumble by Hokies quarterback Jerod Evans.As big a win as it was for the Orange, the game was a huge disappointment to the Hokies, whose head coach blamed himself for the upset.I mean they beat us in all three phases of the game, Justin Fuente said. That falls on me.And now the Hokies have to turn around and play Miami in just five days.With this outcome, the challenges of playing in a short week, youve got to be ready, Fuente said.Syracuse was more than ready Saturday.Before the game we felt like we needed to come out with a chip on our shoulder, said running back Dontae Strickland, who connected with Brisly Estime for an 84-yard touchdown. Even though we were the underdogs, we did that from the jump and you saw what happened.The Hokies tied it at 17 with 13:53 to go in regulation on Evans 10-yard pass to Bucky Hodges and a 2-point conversion catch by Chris Cunningham, but Dungey took over after that.SITTING OUT: Syracuse starting defensive end Kendall Coleman sat out the first half as the result of a targeting penalty against Wake Forest a week ago. Coleman, a true freshman who had started every game, was penalized for targeting quarterback John Wolford in the fourth quarter of a 28-9 loss.POLL IMPLICATIONS: Virginia Tech will plummet after the upset loss, possibly out of the Top 25 .THE TAKEAWAY:Virginia Tech: The Hokies had only allowed 661 yards through the air in their first five games. Syracuse had 405. Virginia Tech had only allowed 20 points combined in its previous three games. The Hokies averaged 39.4 points entering the game.Syracuse: Three Syracuse players completed passes in the first half: Dungey, Strickland and Estime.Dungey was not sacked in the first half but was knocked out of the game for one play on a hit by free safety Mook Reynolds. Zack Mahoney replaced him. Philips had 11 receptions, Estime eight, Steven Ishmael six and Etta-Tawo five.UP NEXT:Virginia Tech: The Hokies host Miami on Thursday night.Syracuse: The Orange travel to Boston College next Saturday. Jalston Fowler Jersey . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. Johnathan Cyprien Jersey . McPhee said that Ovechkins father Mikhail is in stable condition after having the surgery this week and is no longer in intensive care. "Weve told him to stay as long as necessary with your dad," he said. Ovechkin and his Russian national team were eliminated from the mens hockey tournament in Sochi on Wednesday with a 3-1 quarter-final loss to Finland. . The return match will take place next Wednesday. Udinese leads Fiorentina 2-1 in the other semifinal. Napoli staged a second-half comeback from two goals down after Gervinhos opener and a stunning strike from Kevin Strootman. DALLAS -- When the Winnipeg Jets and Dallas Stars hit the ice Tuesday night at American Airlines Center, both teams will be looking to get past disappointing losses.Winnipeg (2-3-0), tied for last in the Central Division, lost 3-0 to the visiting Edmonton Oilers in the NHL Heritage Classic, an outdoor game, on Sunday.The Jets, 0-1-0 on the road, are starting a run of three consecutive games against division foes, with the next two against Dallas. The teams have a rematch in Winnipeg on Thursday.And now the games will change. The first four had a certain feel to it in terms of style, and theres always bit more of an edge when you get into the Central Division, Jets coach Paul Maurice said after practice Monday. The Dallas games are always high-end at both ends. Weve got to make the most of the chances we get in these games.Dallas (2-2-1) heads into this division game off a 3-0 home loss of its own, a shutout defeat Saturday against the Columbus Blue Jackets.The Stars got forward Ales Hemsky (groin) back for his season debut Saturday. However, Hemsky re-injured his groin and landed back on injured reserve Monday afternoon.Dallas recalled forward Justin Dowling, 26, from Texas of the AHL on Monday. Dowling, who was tied for second in the AHL with eight points, figures to make his NHL debut at some point this week.While Hemsky returned Saturday, the Stars were without forward Patrick Eaves, who picked up a lower-body injury in a 4-3 overtime loss to Los Angeles on Thursday. Patrick Sharp, who experienced concussion-like symptoms after a hit against the Kings, also didnt play against Columbus.Neither Eaves or Sharp skated Monday in Frisco, Texas, where the Stars practice. However, coach Lindy Ruff said Eaves possibly could play on Tuesday.Stars forward Jiri Hudler, sidelined due to the flu, skated on his own Monday but is still out.Dallas might also be without veteran center Jason Spezza, who left practice early on Monday with an issue that flared up in the loss to the Blue Jackets. Ruff said Spezzas status would be re-evaluated Tuesday morning when the Stars hold their morning skate. DeMarco Murray Jersey. tars captain Jamie Benn missed practice Monday, but his absence was an excused maintenance day.Ruff wont use his clubs current injury woes as an excuse for the Stars current struggles. Instead, he saw plenty to address from Saturdays loss during practice on Monday.Well, theres lot of things that I thought we could have done better inside the game (against Columbus) , Ruff said. It all comes down to trust. If you dont trust the way youre playing, you dont get much done. Everybody has to do their job.One change Ruff wont rule out for Tuesday is a complete retooling of his defensive pairings. He completely juggled his pairs during practice on Monday, looking to find some sort of combinations that will work consistently going forward, changes he may or may not employ against the Jets.Theres got to be a sense of accountability on how we play in the back end, Ruff said. And if youre going to struggle on the back end, then weve got guys who are going to step in and play.Dallas will be looking to salvage a win in the finale of a three-game homestand. And while this will be the Stars first look at the Jets, it is a team they know well from facing them countless times in the Central over the past few seasons.They got a good team, Stars defenseman Dan Hamhuis said. Theyre always physical and a good team to play against. It should be a good game for us.It is a similar story for the Jets, who will play at Colorado on Friday to finish out their run of three straight against Central foes.Yeah, theyre big games, Winnipeg forward Blake Wheeler said. We didnt do a good enough job in our division last year, and ultimately, if you want to achieve any of your goals, you have to have success within your division. The (Dallas) team we play the next two games, they were really good last year, really good again this year. Its going to be really fun to see where we are. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys CanadaCheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
