For the second straight year, the Syracuse Athletic Department challenged fans to create a winning design for the football team’s annual “Orange Out” game. And for the second straight year, the winning fan delivered with something unique (that also incorporated Happy Otto).
While SU didn’t select any of our “flawless” designs, this one checks a lot of needed boxes all at once. Along with the “Down the Field” fight song name up front, the lyrics are included in the S on the back of the shirt. Additionally, it’s a vintage-looking shirt, which is a rarity for Syracuse Orange gear. Feel like any SU tee I have that comes with a bit more quality and purposeful wear and tear was acquired by way of random happenstance/luck.
You can buy the shirt through the bookstore for $12-14, depending on your size. Once you have it, be sure to wear it to the October 7 home game vs. the Pittsburgh Panthers. You’d assume that Syracuse also dons all-orange on that date.
What do we think of the design? Better than last year’s? Worse? Share your own thoughts below.
