Syracuse University

Syracuse University is investing $118 million dollars to replace the existing Carrier Dome roof and other upgrades that should be ready by Football season 2020 and provide a stadium-like experience.  Over the weekend the University’s Board of Trustees signed-off on the plan to install the suspended roof and updates inside.  Athletic Director John Wildhack says the focus is on students and the fan experience.

Syracuse (15-8, 4-6) will look to rebound after suffering a tough loss to Virginia when they take on the Louisville Cardinals (16-7, 6-4) at the KFC Yum! Center on Monday, February 5 at 7:00 p.m.

The Cardinals will be looking for their fourth consecutive series win against a struggling Orange team that just recorded their lowest scoring in program history at the Carrier Dome when they could tally only 44 points against Virginia.

Syracuse Looks to Upset Virginia in the Dome

Feb 2, 2018

After a tough loss to Georgia Tech on the road Wednesday, Syracuse (15-7, 4-5) seeks to pull off their biggest win of the season against Virginia (21-1, 10-0) in the Carrier Dome on Saturday.

The glaring flaw with the Orange all season long has been its lack of offensive production. 'Cuse has shot only 42.3 percent from the field this year, including just 31.8 percent behind the three-point arc. Syracuse ranks tied for 285th in the country in points per game, scoring just 69.2 points a contest. 

Syracuse to Face Unbeaten Toledo on Wednesday

Nov 21, 2017

Syracuse (4-0, 0-0) continues to roll as they look ahead to their next matchup in the Hoophall Miami Invitational against the Toledo Rockets (3-0, 0-0) on Wednesday.

The undefeated Orange took care of business on Monday when they defeated Oakland 74-50. Sophomore guard Tyus Battle continues to shine, scoring 25 points against the Golden Grizzlies. Frank Howard added 18 points of his own, a career high, along with six assists.

The Syracuse Orange (2-0, 0-0) enters its third game of the season at home against the Texas Southern Tigers (0-3, 0-0) in a prime time matchup under the lights of the Carrier Dome.

Arguably the most impressive aspect of the Orange season thus far has been its defense. Through two games, SU has allowed just 53.5 points per game, good for t-16 in all of Division I college basketball. Syracuse has been able to make opponents shots difficult both in the paint and behind the arc, with 'Cuse ranking in the top 40 in both blocks and three-point field goal defense in the nation.

   After a dominant second half against Cornell, the Syracuse Orange look to build momentum off of their season-opening win when they face off against the Iona Gaels in the Carrier Dome, Tuesday night at 7. Syracuse was anchored by a strong defense in the opener, and star sophomore Tyus Battle was able to pour in 18 points to lead an inexperienced Orange team over overmatched Cornell.

Syracuse to Host Cornell in Season Opener

Nov 9, 2017

Syracuse (0-0, 0-0) will open its season Friday night as they take on the Cornell Big Red (0-0, 0-0) in the Carrier Dome.

The Orange are coming off two convincing preseason victories. After defeating Southern New Hampshire 84-54 on November 1, Syracuse beat Southern Connecticut State on Monday 84-59, marking their second double-digit victory in less than a week.

Home is where the heart is. For the Syracuse football team, this statement continues to ring true. The Orange (4-5, 2-3) has yet to win a road game this year, after losing 27-24 to Florida State (3-5, 3-4) today. Cole Murphy's potential game-tying field goal from 43 yards missed wide left. Syracuse head coach Dino Babers had a solid performance from quarterback Eric Dungey, but that was not enough to earn the victory.

One year after finishing with a  4-8 record, Syracuse Football is poised to improve. Standing in the way of that improvement is the toughest schedule in the NCAA. Head coach Dino Babers, Quarterback Eric Dungey and Linebacker Zaire Franklin spoke in Charlotte today at the 2017 ACC Football Kickoff.

It took only a couple of questions before Zaire Franklin was reminded of the 2016 season finale. Back in November, Syracuse gave up 76 points en route to its eighth loss of the season. Franklin can’t wait to get that game out of his system.
