Syracuse will wear orange helmets, jerseys vs. Central Michigan

Another new combo this season.

NCAA Football: Syracuse at South Florida Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

Did we get a cease & desist after using Migos & 2 Chainz on last week’s unveil?

The orange helmet, orange jersey, blue pants look will be a first for Syracuse with this uniform set (and maybe in program history, too). We haven’t seen the orange jerseys since last year’s creamsicle game in the home loss to Florida State.

The Orange are 6-17 with the orange helmets, including a loss last week and two straight dating back to last year’s Pitt loss. SU last won with the orange lids in the Virginia Tech game. Yes, it’s been that long.

Syracuse’s orange jerseys are one of the only uniform elements in this set with a .500 or better record. We’re 3-3 in those games, with wins over Wake Forest (2015), Boston College (2015) and Colgate (2016). The blue pants are just 2-6, with three straight losses dating back to last year’s Wake game. SU’s two blue pants wins are against Colgate and Villanova, which... moving on.

Like the new look? Let’s talk about something other than returning to the Donovan McNabb-era uniforms below.
