I dare you to try and tell me that Syracuse doesn’t play anyone on their schedule.
Syracuse got one of the marquee non conference games of the 2013-2014 season today as it was announced that the Indiana Hoosiers will come to the Carrier Dome for the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. This is great news for Syracuse fans, who already have one of the more exciting home basketball schedules in recent memory. Earlier this week it was announced the Syracuse and Villanova were working on a series over three seasons, including a home and home series with one neutral game at Madison Square Garden.
Here are the confirmed home games for the Orange in the next basketball season:
- North Carolina
- Notre Dame
- NC State
- Boston College
- Georgia Tech
This home schedule so far is awesome. As much as we are all going to miss the Big East, I think this is the kind of schedule that can help us move on from the dying conference, and fast. The ACC is without a doubt one of the best basketball conferences in the country, and the Orange appear to have every marquee game in the Carrier Dome this season. Not only will this bode well for attendance, but it also is the most favorable conference schedule the Orange have had since the 2009-2010 season, a year in which the Orange captured the regular season Big East Championship and a #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
It’s gonna be a fun ride my friends…
