Carrier Dome

Despite poor shooting, the Orange cruised past Adrian in its final tuneup game.

As the second half began and the announced 7,680 fans rose to their feet, No. 23 Syracuse was nursing an unexpectedly low 13-point lead over D-III Adrian. Still, it was right on the doorstep of breaking the game open 

Twelve minutes later, it had busted the door off its hinges. 

Behind an impressive 23-0 run to begin the latter period, the Orange rolled to an easy 84-35 victory over the Bulldogs at the Carrier Dome on Monday night in its final exhibition contest of the preseason.

SU is now eliminated from bowl contention for the first time since 2011.

The Carrier Dome hasn’t been kind to the Syracuse Orange this season.

Hoping to keep its postseason hopes alive against Duke on Saturday, the Orange instead dropped its third straight game, 27-10, in front of 39,331 fans on Senior Day. SU will finish 1-5 at the Dome and out of the bowl picture.

The Duke head coach spoke highly of AJ Long and the rest of the Orange prior to their Saturday showdown.

Duke (7-1) head football coach David Cutcliffe spoke to the media Wednesday afternoon during the Atlantic Coast Conference's weekly coaches teleconference.

Not surprisingly, Cutcliffe talked about the Blue Devils' upcoming date with Syracuse (3-6) on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. in the Carrier Dome.

SU mounts a second-half comeback as new offensive weapons emerge.

After a disappointing conclusion to a once-promising 2013-2014 campaign, standout performances by two of No. 24 Syracuse’s marquee freshmen gave Orange fans plenty of reason to celebrate again Sunday afternoon at the Carrier Dome. 

SU trailed by double digits early on, but seized momentum in the second half behind the play of Kaleb Joseph and fellow frosh Chris McCullough en route to a hard-fought 76-68 victory over Carleton.

The event featured scrimmages by both SU squads, along with a Legends Game, dunk contest, three-point contest and "selfie stations."

While Syracuse’s annual Orange Madness celebration didn’t feature Drake warming up on the court, there was certainly a lot of excitement at the Carrier Dome on Friday night. 

Men’s basketball coach Jim Boeheim came out for introductions in a Humvee. Former Syracuse forward John Wallace proved that, even at 40 years old, he can still throw down a dunk. And 10-year-old Nicholas Trivelpiece made a shot in the final seconds of the men’s scrimmage game.
