Sean Tucker runs all over the Great Danes

Freshman running back Sean Tucker was the star for Syracuse football on Saturday, scoring five touchdowns in the team’s 62-24 victory over Albany.

Tucker’s endzone output was one short of the school record six TDs, which Hall of Famer Jim Brown set against Colgate in 1956. Floyd Little (1964) and Walter Reyes (2003) also scored five TDs in a game for the Orange.

Tucker was able to set one school mark, however, as he became the first SU player to have 100 yards rushing and 100 yards receiving in the same game.
