Syracuse Orange football season is still a little under 100 days away but it's never too early to think about which ticket plan you're going to consider. Is season tickets too rich for your blood but one game not enough? How about one of these ticket packages that will be available as of June 1?
Two different three-game packs will go on sale June 1. Fans have the option to choose from the 'BlitzPack', which includes tickets to the season-opener vs. Rhode Island (Sept. 4), as well as ACC rivals Pitt (Oct. 24) and Clemson (Nov. 14).
The package guarantees the same seat for every game in the first level of the Carrier Dome and costs $125 per package.
For the first time, Orange fans also have the opportunity to purchase a three-game ticket package to any games they choose, including the highly anticipated matchup with LSU on Sept. 26.
With the 'You Pick 3' ticket package, 'Cuse fans can pick any three home games on the team's schedule and guarantee themselves first level seating inside the Carrier Dome for $150.
The Blitz Package isn't a bad idea. Sure the Rhode Island game isn't attractive, but...
1. It's the season opener
2. It's not like recent Syracuse football games against FCS squads haven't been entertaining*.
*that might not be the right word
That YouPick3 package might be a pretty good way to lock yourself in for some of the best SU games of the season. You've got some options depending on what you want to see.
If you just want the best teams, you can go with the LSU Tigers, Clemson Tigers and Pitt/BC.
If you want to go see Syracuse win, go with Rhode Island, Wake and CMU. Your Dome experiences will be over before September is, but at least you'll (probably) have watched SU win some football games.
If it were me, I'd go with LSU (to see them in person), Clemson (on the minuscule chance we win and we can go f***ing nuts) and Boston College (season-ender, rivalry game and potential bowl-clincher).
How bout you?
