Colgate Prepares For Annual Pasting: Raiders Visit Dome Nov. 19

Syracuse and Colgate have played each on the hardwood 163 times. At the first meeting in 1902, Jim Boeheim scored 22 and Syracuse trounced the Raiders 33-8.* Colgate got us back a month later, 21-17, and the rivalry was born.

The rivalry kinda died in the 50's when the Orange started winning every single game the two teams played, a streak that hasn't let up in 45 years (We lead the series 118-45). Odds are it won't let up this year either when the Orange and Raiders tangle on November 19th in the Carrier Dome.

Colgate was 7-23 overall and 4-10 in the Patriot League last year but there's a new sheriff in town. Former Temple and Penn assistant Matt Langel is their new coach. Let's give him a warm welcome, shall we?

Last season the Orange put a walloping on Colgate, 100-45. The Orange led by as much as 63 and the 57-point final equaled Syracuse’s largest win in Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim’s 35-year tenure.

* Some parts of that sentence might be untrue.
