Syracuse Basketball: Fordham Rams Return To Dome On November 12

USA TODAY Sports

SU may be opening their season against the Fordham Rams. Updates on that and a look at what we know for sure in the 2013-2014 basketball schedule.

As the Syracuse Orange get set to begin their first ACC basketball season with a schedule full of new faces, it's nice to see at least a few old reliables trickling in.

The Fordham Rams will return to the Carrier Dome to take on Syracuse on Tuesday, November 12.

The Orange and the Rams have met 43 times previously in a series that began in the 1927-28 season. Syracuse has a 27-16 advantage in the all-time meetings. SU has won three straight and 10-of-11 in matchups with Fordham. The most recent encounter, in 2011-12, resulted in a 78-53 Syracuse victory.

Last year, the Rams went a dismal 7-24 under third-year coach Tom Pecora. The coach who worked some magic at Hofstra before coming over better start working some here ASAP, he's 24-64 in three seasons at the helm. Senior Branden Frazier is the team's returning star, and may or may not have already defeated a mummy not once, not twice but three times. Keep an eye on him.

So, this is as good a time as any to start piecing together the exact dates on the 2013-2014 schedule. Here she is as we know it today...
