November 26, 1914 - Notre Dame defeats another eastern power
ND returned East to meet one more eastern power. Syracuse had already beaten Michigan.
A now healthy Eichenlaub starred at fullback and in the defensive line , finishing the season by almost single-handedly putting on a goal line stand at the 2 as the game ended.
The Irish finished 6-2 after the 20-0 victory over Syracuse.
Harper never lost two games in a season again-in fact ND did not lose two game in a season for ten year- until 1925 (a year after the '24 National Championship).
