It seemed a little strange that the 2012 season-opener between the Syracuse Orange and Northwestern Wildcats wasn't a nationally-televised game. Surely, we thought, there was enough here to warrant an ESPN2 showing.

And we were correct.

The 2012 Syracuse football season will begin with a nationally televised game from the Carrier Dome. The Orange will host Northwestern on September 1 before an ESPN2 audience. Kickoff is set for 12:00 p.m. In addition, Syracuse’s game against Stony Brook will kick off at 4:00 p.m. and will be televised on Time Warner Cable Sports, throughout upstate New York and carried on SNY, reaching 14 million homes.

It just wouldn't feel right not kicking off the season with a Nooner.

That makes it six total nationally-televised games including USC (ABC), Pittsburgh (ESPN), UConn (ESPN), Temple (ESPN/ESPN2) and Minnesota (BTN). The Orange have a lot of chances to appear on TV this season...let's hope they win more than not.
