The next two weeks feature the Wake Forest Demon Deacons (Sept. 12) and the Central Michigan Chippewas (Sept. 19) visiting the Carrier Dome.
A Week 4 match up, Sept. 26, against the visiting LSU Tigers will be highly anticipated. That showdown will be followed be a BYE WEEK in Week 5.
From there, Syracuse will play a non-conference showdown at the South Florida Bulls (Oct. 10) in Week 6. The Orange return to ACC play with a Week 6 contest at the Virginia Cavaliers (Oct. 17) and a home game against the visiting Pittsburg Panthers (Oct. 24).
