Syracuse's 1991 homecoming victory over Steve Spurrier's Florida Gators holds down the #7 spot on our countdown of the Top 10 Biggest Syracuse Football wins of the HumpIdiot Era.
Russianator, "Steve Spurrier brought a confident Gator team into the Dome. They were 2-0 on the season, they had just thrashed Alabama 35-0 the week before and they were coming off a 9-2 campaign the year before. That all changed when SU ran a reverse on the opening kickoff that Kirby Dar Dar took to the house. The building exploded, SU jumped out to an early lead they would never relinquish. Shane Matthews could not rally the Gators as first year Coach P taught the old ball coach a lesson that day."
AJV, "This is my first 'big' game memory. I remember talking my mom into letting me skip church so I could watch the game. And I was an altar boy."
Boss, "Yes, you read that correctly. It's been 18 years since Kirby Dar Dar took the opening kickoff back against the SEC champions. The Gators only lost one regular season game that fall."
Champ, "The Gators would never come North again."
