We were wondering what might happen to the Syracuse Orange fall non-revenue sports once the NCAA Championships were cancelled. On Friday the ACC announced their plans for these sports which will culminate in ACC Championships later this fall. Let’s take a look by sport.

Field Hockey

Syracuse will face six different ACC opponents this Fall. They play the Duke Blue Devils, Boston College Eagles, Virginia Cavaliers, and Wake Forest Demon Deacons twice with single games against the UNC Tar Heels and Louisville Cardinals.

The ACC Championship will involve all seven ACC teams and will be held November 5-8 at Duke.

Men’s Soccer

Syracuse’s men’s soccer team was placed in the ACC North region along with Virginia, Pitt, Notre Dame, Louisville and Virginia Tech. The Orange will face the Cavaliers and Panthers twice and have one non-conference game scheduled at Navy.

The top four teams in the two ACC regions will advance to the ACC Championships in North Carolina in late November.

Women’s Soccer

The Orange women’s soccer team will play nine ACC games against eight different opponents. Syracuse and Pitt will play a home and home and the top eight ACC teams will play in the ACC Championships in November at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, NC.

Volleyball

The Orange volleyball team gets a really short schedule as they play eight matches over four weeks. The fifteen ACC schools have been placed in three different regions. Syracuse will host Pitt and Boston College with trips to Notre Dame and Louisville in-between.

Cross Country

The ACC will hold a Cross-Country championship on Friday October 30th in Cary, NC. All ACC schools will compete in men’s and women’s races. We’re still waiting confirmation on other races scheduled but it sounds like Syracuse will compete in a couple of smaller races before the ACC meet.

Even though this won’t count as an official year of eligibility, it’s nice that Orange athletes will know when and where they will compete
