ODU looks back on stunning upset win at Syracuse


NORFOLK (WAVY) – It’s been almost three months since the Old Dominion football team pulled off one of the biggest upsets in history, topping Virginia Tech 49-35 at SB Ballard Stadium. 

The team and the student section stormed the field in celebration right after the clock hit zero. One of the students who stormed the field that afternoon just helped lead his team to the biggest upset of the weekend in college basketball. 

“Dream come true,” said Ahmad Caver on Monday, only two days after the Monarchs (8-3) sank 25th-ranked Syracuse 68-62 inside the Carrier Dome. It was ODU’s first win over a ranked team on the road since beating Georgetown in 2009. 

“Syracuse was my dream school,” said Caver. “I’m a big fan of Carmelo Anthony. So, ever since then, I’ve been a big Syracuse fan and I think that was a dream come true.”
