Syracuse Welcomes Cornell Back to Carrier Dome on December 19

Syracuse's second-most common foe returns to the Dome once again.

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Our old friends the Cornell Big Red will be returning to the Carrier Dome on December 19 for another addition to the long rivalry with the Syracuse Orange.

Cornell is Syracuse's second-most common all-time opponent behind Colgate and the Orange hold an 89-31 advantage in the series. Syracuse has won the last 25 meetings between the two, the last of which was a 61-44 victory in 2014.

Ever since their Sweet Sixteen appearance in the Dome in 2010, it's been lean times for the Big Red. They went 13-17 overall last season, 5-9 in Ivy League play. That's still a marked improvement from the 2-26 debacle from the previous season. Head Coach Bill Courtney is 50-95 in five seasons with the school.
