Syracuse’s home slate for their first season in the ACC is awesome.
The Atlantic Coast Conference just released their football opponents for the 2013 season. Here are the home and away games for Syracuse, as listed on the Syracuse Athletics website:

Boston College and Clemson at home? Sign me up. The only thing that really would have made this schedule better would be Florida State coming to the Dome. As it is, I love that it is staggered where Syracuse is playing Clemson and Florida State on opposite years. I haven’t seen word on any dates being released, but the ACC loves to have week one match ups, so a Syracuse-Clemson week one match up in the Dome would make me happier than a 10 year old on Christmas morning.
The timing of this schedule is absolutely perfect with the Scott Shafer press conference scheduled for 12:30, so after a long week Syracuse fans can actually start to get excited again.
More details about the schedule as they come available.
