Syracuse posted a moderate 7-6 record in its first year in the ACC last season and will again have a difficult home schedule in 2014, though secondary market ticket prices at the Carrier Dome remain considerably low. According to TiqIQ, an October 11 game against Florida State will serve as the most expensive home game of the season at the Carrier Dome for the Orange, but a home game scheduled at MetLife Stadium against Notre Dame currently has the highest secondary market average on the Syracuse football schedule. The season average for Syracuse football tickets is $78.38 on the secondary market, one of the lowest average prices at home in the conference this season. Only Boston College, Pittsburgh and Duke have lower season averages in the ACC.
