The official 2023 schedule for Syracuse football was released on Monday night, with the first game being a home game to start the season on September 2nd versus Colgate.

The schedule was released on the Orange football team’s Twitter page on Monday night, as the Orange looks to improve on a 2022 season where the team made a bowl game last year and finished at 7-6 overall.

We have three highlighted matchups that ‘Cuse fans can look forward to this upcoming season. Additional details on the 2023 calendar are available via this press release from SU Athletics.

Here are some key games for Syracuse football in 2023.

September 30th: Home vs Clemson Tigers

It’s always a big-time matchup feel when the Clemson Tigers come to the Dome, and on September 30th, the fans get to relive it all over again. The Tigers will come to Syracuse, as the last time these two teams met was in a nail bitter in Clemson, where the Tigers came out with a 27-21 win over the Orange, handing Syracuse football its first loss of the season after going 6-0 in its first six games.

September 16th: Away vs Purdue Boilermakers

This matchup was highlighted due to the intense matchup last season, where the Orange was able to come out of the JMA Wireless Dome with a 32-29 win over the Boilermakers and advance to 4-0. This time, the Orange will be on the road and Purdue is looking for some revenge, as many believe this will be another back-and-forth contest between these two teams.

November 11th: vs Pittsburgh Panthers at Yankee Stadium

That’s right, we have a neutral site game this upcoming season, as the Syracuse Orange and Pittsburgh Panthers will take their rivalry to the Big Apple, as they will play in Yankee Stadium on November 11th. This game will be big for the Orange, as they look to put the past behind them, following a bowl loss in the same stadium last year, as this rivalry will heat up in one of the best stadiums in New York.

Other highlighted games on the season, such as games against North Carolina (Oct. 7th), Georgia Tech (Nov. 18th), and Florida State (Oct. 14th), are going to be thrillers this season and we hope to bring you lots of coverage this upcoming season.
