By Kevin Kelley -

The Syracuse Orange will host three football games at the new Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, reports. Syracuse will play the USC Trojans in 2012 and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in 2015 and 2017.

All three of the games at Meadowlands Stadium will be considered home games for the Syracuse Orange.
