The biggest halftime deficit at home before this game might have been when Syracuse played Michigan there in 1998. We led 24-7 at halftime. We were incidentally up 38-7 after the 3rd quarter, before Coach P called the dogs off and Michigan scored 21 in the 4th to make the final score look somewhat respectable.
I was 13 years old when that game happened. I remember that we had just gotten power back at our house a mere hours before kickoff after it had been out for a week due to the Labor Day storm. So happy I was able to watch that thrashing. McNabb running for a touchdown after losing a shoe is a play that I will never forget.
