Syracuse quarterback Rex Culpeepper throws first touchdown since being diagnosed with cancer in 2018

After 100 hours of chemotherapy and more than two years of waiting, Rex Culpepper found the end zone Saturday.

The Syracuse quarterback threw for his first touchdown since he was diagnosed with testicular cancer in March 2018 off a spectacular 69-yard scoring play against Pittsburgh.

Culpepper – in the shotgun with an empty backfield — dropped a dime to receiver Taj Harris outside the numbers near the 35-yard line and the junior wideout took it from there. Harris proceeded to break two tackles to cap off the big play and give the Orange a 10-7 lead in the second quarter.
