As we’d hinted at in Sunday’s article, it seemed likely that the full ACC and Syracuse Orange football schedules for 2017 would be coming this week. Ends up our hunches were correct. The ACC announced the dates for all conference games at 2 p.m. ET today.
While you sort of care about the other 13 ACC teams’ schedules, you’re really here to look at the Orange’s slate, so you can start complaining, planning tailgates, etc. Rather than delay that any further, we’ll just get right to that below:
Saturday, September 2: Central Connecticut State
Saturday, September 9: Middle Tennessee
Saturday, September 16: Central Michigan
Saturday, September 23: at LSU
Saturday: September 30: at NC State
Saturday, October 7: Pittsburgh
Friday, October 13: Clemson
Saturday, October 21: at Miami
Saturday, October 28: BYE
Saturday, November 4: at Florida State
Saturday, November 11: Wake Forest
Saturday, November 18: at Louisville
Saturday, November 25: Boston College
We’ll be posting a reaction to the schedule shortly. But in the meantime, figured you’d want to see this news as it comes out. My ALL CAPS methods haven’t simply gone by the wayside now that I’m “in charge.” There will be plenty more to say about how this schedule lays out in the next post (and why it probably prohibits SU from being as successful as they otherwise could be).
But what about your thoughts on the 2017 Orange football schedule? Share away in the comments.
