  Syracuse lost for the first time since the 2014 national championship game against Bryant.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- In a game that lived up to the billing, No. 2 Notre Dame topped No. 1 Syracuse in double overtime 13-12 on Saturday afternoon at Arlotta Stadium. Senior captain Jack Near netted the game winner for the Fighting Irish, who improved to 2-0 in Atlantic Coast Conference play.

It was the first time in program history that Notre Dame defeated a top-ranked opponent. The Irish had been 0-4 against No. 1 teams.

Four different Fighting Irish players -- Mikey Wynne, Sergio Perkovic, Nick Ossello and Near -- all tallied two goals, while Matt Kavanagh registered one goal and a game-high three assists. Goalie Shane Doss, the reigning ACC and USILA defensive player of the week, made 12 saves in the win.

Dylan Donahue had seven goals for Syracuse and Nicky Galasso contributed two goals and two assists.
