Dungey was lost for the game with what the team called an “upper body injury.”
As Dungey was being dragged to the ground upon the release of a touchdown pass to Dontae Strickland, Stanitzek flew in and clocked Dungey with a late helmet-to-helmet hit.
Dungey was looked at by the sports medicine staff and walked off under his own power.
In addition to the ejection, Stanitzek was assessed a roughing the passer penalty.
The score put Syracuse up 17–3 with 9:20 left in the half. Dungey completed 3 of 6 passes for 93 yards, and added 50 more on the ground, before the hit.
He was replaced at QB by Austin Wilson on the following drive.
