The Orange begins its season at home on Friday, Sept. 1 at 7 p.m. against Central Connecticut State. In Week 2, SU hosts Middle Tennessee State on Saturday, Sept. 9 at 3:30 p.m., as former Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer returns to the Carrier Dome as a defensive coordinator for MTSU. The next week, on Saturday, Sept. 16, Syracuse plays again at 3:30 p.m., this time against Central Michigan.

SU’s first three games will air on ACC Network Extra, a live-streaming events channel available through WatchESPN.
