During the most nooner year and the most nooner Syracuse Orange football season, we’ve been properly rewarded with the exact prize we deserve: Every game at 12 or 12:30 p.m. The trend will continue into the final week of October too, as game times were announced for Halloween and Syracuse will take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons at... NOON ET ON ACC NETWORK.
The sacred prophecy always foretold that this matchup was destined for a noon kickoff on ACC Network, and it comes to pass yet again. For those keeping track at home, here’s a rundown of kickoffs and scheduled kickoffs for Syracuse so far this season:
(all times ET)
- Syracuse at North Carolina, noon - ACC Network
- Syracuse at Pittsburgh, noon - ACC Network
- Georgia Tech at Syracuse, noon - RSN
- Duke at Syracuse, 12:30 p.m. - RSN
- Liberty at Syracuse, noon - RSN
- Syracuse at Clemson, noon - ACC Network
- Wake Forest at Syracuse, noon - ACC Network
Given how Syracuse has been playing this season, the nooners seem likely to be the rule in all but two games this year. SU’s Friday night game at Louisville is already scheduled for a 7 p.m. kick. And the trip to Notre Dame in the season finale is set for 2:30 p.m.
But back to Wake Forest: The Deacs are 2-2 on the year, having won two straight going into this coming weekend’s game against Virginia Tech. However, SU’s won two consecutive games against Wake, including last year’s 39-30 overtime thriller. They’re also 5-2 against Wake Forest since joining the ACC (6-3 overall).
