Syracuse’s nonconference schedule has been fully released, Syracuse Athletics announced Tuesday afternoon. Seven of the 13 games will be in the Carrier Dome.
Of the Orange’s non-Atlantic Coast Conference opponents, only one finished last season ranked: No. 2 Mississippi State. The Bulldogs lost the national championship game to South Carolina after snapping then-No. 1 Connecticut’s NCAA-record 111-game win streak.
SU will also be taking part in four separate showcases and tournaments. The first is the Paradise Jam in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, beginning on Thanksgiving, Nov. 23. Syracuse will play three games in the tropics, taking on Wisconsin, Vanderbilt and George Washington.
Days before Christmas, the Orange will head west to Las Vegas to take on MSU, as well as the University of Nevada Las Vegas, in the Duel in the Desert. SU will also take on Northwestern in the Big Ten/ACC challenge at home and play Coastal Carolina in the Carolinas Challenge on CCU’s campus.
After falling in the second round of last season’s NCAA tournament at the hands of UConn, Syracuse will open its season at home against Morgan State on Nov. 10.
