Was there any doubt who the NCAA.com Men’s Lacrosse Team of the Week would be?

Notre Dame took over the No. 1 ranking in college lacrosse after a 13-12 double overtime win against Syracuse on Saturday in South Bend, Indiana.

Senior Jack Near scored the game winner as the Fighting Irish defeated a No. 1 ranked team for the first time in the program’s history.

Mikey Wynne, Sergio Perkovic, Nick Ossello and Near each scored two goals. Shane Doess added 12 saves.

Notre Dame led 5-3 at halftime and built as much as a six-goal lead, but the Orange stormed back in the fourth quarter led by Dylan Donahue, who had seven goals in the contest. Donahue scored with 1:06 to play in a shot clock on situation. On the ensuing faceoff, sophomore P.J. Finley raced down the middle of the field to score his first career goal seven seconds later.

Notre Dame (6-1, 2-0 ACC) defends its top spot in the polls when it visits No. 7 Duke on Saturday.
