When the Syracuse Orange and Boston College Eagles face off on November 28, it'll be at 12:30 p.m. ET at the Carrier Dome. The game will also be carried on RSNs near you (check your local listings).
As always, this one's all about the #OrangeEagle points -- though probably not much else in 2015. After a tough defeat against Clemson last week, Syracuse sits at 3-7 and won't be going bowling. The Eagles are 3-7 as well, and seem like they're making a beeline for 3-8 with Notre Dame up this coming weekend. Syracuse faces NC State this coming Saturday and hopes to break a seven-game losing skid. BC has currently lost six straight.
Though it's been a rough season for both participants, this is what the #OrangeEagle Trophy is all about. Even when there's nothing on the line, there IS something.
We haven't done a formal #OrangeEagle points update in a bit, but Syracuse currently stands with a commanding lead in the 2015-16 series at 30-6. There are more points available for the fall sports too, with SU men's soccer and women's field hockey each respectively gunning for 10 by way of a national championship. The annual football matchup is worth 12, for those that need a refresher on how these point totals work.
So if you're not debilitated by tryptophan anymore once Saturday rolls around, get to the Dome or tune in to watch the Orange take on strongly disliked/hated-I-guess Boston College.
