Syracuse is 3-1 in games that start at 7:00 p.m. ET or later. They'll have a chance to make it 4-1 now that the Missouri game has been announced for a 7pm start.
Night games have been relatively good to the 2012 Syracuse Orange football team.
In games starting at 7:00 p.m. ET or later, Syracuse is 3-1 on the season and has won three-in-a-row. So I suppose that's a little bit of good news as the team looks ahead to it's Nov. 17showdown with the Missouri Tigers, which has been set for a 7 p.m. kickoff. The game will be televised on ESPNU.
Syracuse is 1-1 in road games played at night, losing to Minnesota but beating South Florida. Missouri will likely be the toughest of the three road games, current record aside.
Of course, there is bad news is that with a Friday game against Temple the following week, it means the Orange have a little bit less time on Sunday to prep. Throw in Thanksgiving on Thursday and the game that might determine the season will be one SU doesn't have a lot of time to prepare for.
