Last year Syracuse opened up the new year with a win at Notre Dame. Can Syracuse make it two straight over the Irish?

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team enters the new year with 18 ACC games ahead, while having played two league games already.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish come to town to take on the Orange for a Saturday matchup inside the Carrier Dome. The game will tip momentarily.

Syracuse has won three straight, while Notre Dame looks for its first conference win after losing to North Carolina in the season-opener and against Boston College (for some reason).

Syracuse opened as a 3.5-point favorite over Mike Brey’s squad. The game is set for a 4 p.m. tip with ESPN2 picking up coverage. Jason Benetti and Dan Dakich are on the call.

Highlights from last year’s matchup below:
