Associated Press

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Terrel Hunt, making his first career start for the Orange, threw for four touchdowns and ran for another to help Syracuse rout Tulane 52-17 on Saturday in the Carrier Dome.

Hunt completed 16 of 21 passes for 175 yards.

Clay Cleveland snared two of Hunt's scoring strikes for Syracuse (2-2), which put the game away early and took a 42-17 lead into halftime.

Jerome Smith found the end zone twice, scoring on a run from the 1-yard line and another on a 15-yard touchdown catch. Prince-Tyson Gulley also ran for a Syracuse score.

Quarterback Nick Montana, who was playing in front of his father, former NFL great Joe Montana, took a brutal pounding while completing 22 of 38 passes for 213 yards and one touchdown for the Green Wave (2-2).
