ESPN's bottom line just said that the 98 yard return by Graham was the longest in Syracuse history but I swear I remember Jim Turner taking one 100 against Rutgers in that crazy 36-35 game in 1994

upperdeck, can you check the archives?

Maybe they meant in the Dome???

Thinking of it Turners was 94 yards.

By far the most electric play to happen in the Dome in a long, long time regardless of records. The place was going absolutely nuts on that return. I brought some buddies up that have never been to a game, brought them into the student section, and needless to say they were not disappointed in the least bit.

Ah thanks. I knew Turner had one 100 yarder. That was the 55-7 game and KJ returned a punt for a score too as I recall.

In any event, my inner statistician called bullsh!t on ESPN. :)

I thin we've had longer ones too

I thought it was the longest return in the history of the SU/WVU serioes
