Syracuse Basketball Schedule: Colgate to Visit Orange on December 22

New, 14 comments

The non-rivalry rivalry continues, as Colgate pays a visit to the Carrier Dome this season...

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

With just a few open slots remaining in the Syracuse basketball schedule, you had to figure one of them was going to Colgate. Welp, you figured right.

Per Syracuse Athletics today, the Raiders are coming to the Carrier Dome yet again to face off with the long-time "rival" Orange. The December 22 meeting will be the 167th in the series, which Syracuse leads 121-45. SU is currently on a 48-game winning streak in the "rivalry" and has played Colgate every season since 1993. Last year, the Orange won 69-50, which was the closest final score since 2004 (68-55).

Last season, 'Gate went 13-18, finishing seventh in the Patriot League with a 6-12 conference record. Despite the losing record, Colgate brings back head coach Matt Langel for another season on the bench. Good for him!

So with Colgate added, that's now 12 opponents confirmed for non-conference play, plus 18 for the ACC. We're likely looking at one more team to add to the non-league slate (maybe Cornell?), so be on the lookout for that in the coming days/weeks.
