SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Syracuse's football schedule for the fall is out, and it features defending national champion Florida State in the Carrier Dome among eight bowl teams from this past season.
The Orange open at home against Villanova on Aug. 30. The Dome schedule includes Maryland, Louisville, the Seminoles on Oct. 11, North Carolina State and Duke.
Syracuse will play Notre Dame in New York's College Classic on Sept. 27 at MetLife Stadium and has road games at Central Michigan, Wake Forest, Clemson, Pitt, and Boston College.
The Orange finished 7-6 last season under first-year coach Scott Shafer after beating Minnesota in the Texas Bowl. They'll be seeking their fourth bowl game appearance in five years.
