Syracuse hosts Clemson in primetime Friday night matchup

The Orange host the reigning National Champion Clemson Tigers for a primetime matchup Friday night at the Carrier Dome. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. with the game airing on ESPN. The team is looking forward to packing the Dome on Family Weekend and fans can purchase tickets for the game here.

It’s a heck of a task, there’s no doubt about it, but let’s get in the chairs and have an opinion and let’s watch and see what can happen.”

The Orange are coming off their first ACC win of the season, a 27-24 victory over Pittsburgh on Saturday. ‘Cuse held the Panthers to 358 yards with Parris Bennett pacing the Orange with a season-best 14 tackles in the game, including one for loss. The combination of Bennett and Zaire Franklin in the backfield has been dominant for the Orange this season as the duo accounts for 96 tackles so far in 2017. Read More
