The Syracuse Orange have completed their 2017 non-conference football schedule, the school announced on Thursday.
Syracuse completed their 2017 slate with the addition of Central Connecticut State University. The two teams will open the 2017 season at the Carrier Dome on Sept. 2.
CCSU is a member of the Northeast Conference (NEC) in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). The Blue Devils finished the 2016 season 2-9 overall and 1-5 in conference play.
After hosting the Blue Devils, Syracuse will entertain two more non-conference foes at the Carrier Dome in consecutive weeks. Middle Tennessee visits on Sept. 9 and is followed by Central Michigan on Sept. 16.
Syracuse closes out the non-conference portion of their 2017 schedule on Sept. 23 at LSU. The game is the second half of a home-and-home series that began in 2015 at the Carrier Dome. LSU won that game 34-24.
In ACC play, the Orange are scheduled to host Boston College, Clemson, Pittsburgh, and Wake Forest and travel to face Florida State, Louisville, Miami (FL), and NC State.
Per today’s release, Syracuse expects the 2017 ACC football schedule to be released “in late January or early February.”
