The Syracuse is better known around the nation as a basketball, but Syracuse faithful are just as passionate about football. Located in upstate New York, Syracuse is a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference and plays football in the Carrier Dome Stadium that is also the schools venue for their basketball and lacrosse teams.
Syracuse has a successful bowl game history with a winning record in their 25 postseason appearances. Their one national championship came in 1959 when the Orange defeated the Texas Longhorns in the Cotton Bowl by a score of 23-14. Syracuse remained a strong program until the mid-1960’s when the Orange began to struggle and didn’t return to being a competitive program until the mid-1980’s. Since then, Syracuse has been a consistent program that regularly plays in bowl games.
Due to the fact that college football is less prominent in the northeastern United States than it is in the rest of the country, Syracuse is one of the few Division I programs in the region. Therefore, the Orange have a lot of fans that aren’t even associated with the university, as well as having a strong following by the students and alumni. Wherever Syracuse plays their bowl games, the Orange fans are never far behind. Score with TicketCity - the place to go for Syracuse Orange Bowl Game tickets.
