Delone Carter rushed for 115 yards for Syracuse, which closes the regular season next weekend at No. 7 Rutgers.
D.J. Hernandez threw for two touchdowns for the Huskies (4-6, 1-4), who must win their final two games to qualify for the postseason.
Huskies running back Donald Brown, who rushed for 199 and 205 yards the last two games, was limited to 67 on 18 carries.
