Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Orange will take on their current-Big East rival and soon-to-be ACC rival, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, in the 2013 Big City Classic, taking place April 27, 2013 at MetLife Stadium.

Ah, it'll be good to get back home.

A lacrosse "Classic" is happening and you know what that means. The Syracuse Orange lacrosse team is involved.

The Orange will take on their current-Big East rival and soon-to-be ACC rival, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, in the 2013 Big City Classic, taking place April 27, 2013 at MetLife Stadium.

Even though it's a special event, it will still count as a Big East Conference game.

Unlike most years, the Big City Classic is now a two-game affair. It's always been a three-gamer up until now. Gone is the first game of the day, which usually pits a one or two local lower-profile squads against one another. The event will kick off at 4:00 p.m. with the Princeton Tigers taking on the Cornell Big Red before the Orange and Irish square off around 6:30 p.m.

Syracuse has participated in the Big City Classic every year since it started in 2009. They've lost to Princeton, 12-8. They got revenge on the Tigers with a 13-4 lashing in 2010. In 2011, they took on the Duke Blue Devils and won 13-11 but the Devils got revenge this past season with a 12-10 win.

Along with the Big City Classic is the Face-Off Classic on March 23rd in Baltimore, which somehow will not include the Orange. It will feature Colgate vs. Navy and Virginia vs. Johns Hopkins.
