Syracuse to play 10 more games at Meadowlands

The Syracuse Orange have agreed to extend their relationship

with New Meadowlands Stadium to include 10 more football games.

The Orange already are slated to play single games against

Southern Cal and Penn State and two against Notre Dame in the next

five years. The 10 additional games will be scheduled between 2019

and 2038.

Syracuse has a strong fan base in the region and athletic

director Daryl Gross has targeted it for marketing. The Orange beat

Kansas State 36-34 in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium in late


Syracuse first visited the Meadowlands in 1979, playing Penn

State and West Virginia while the Carrier Dome was under

construction. The Orange are 5-3 at the Meadowlands.
