SYRACUSE – It’s homecoming weekend at the Carrier Dome and Syracuse University officials have been planning for the game against Clemson since July. The SU football team will face-off against No. 1 Clemson on Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019.

There will be a sky-cam during the Orange Central Weekend and SU is focusing on maintaining a smooth operation as construction continues at the venue.

Fans are encouraged to wear their favorite orange 'Cuse gear for an “Orange Out.”

Head Coach Dino Babers is looking ahead after a loss to Maryland on the road.

“I’m excited that we're going to get a game nationally for our community, for our student body, for this university. I'm excited about that. Hopefully, we're going to play in such a manner that they're going to be proud of our performance,” said Babers.

Prior to the game, fans are invited to attend ‘Cuse on the Quad, a pre-game tailgate that features entertainment by Eric Chesser, hosted by Syracuse University football All-American Dwight Freeney, Class of 2002

Country Swagg will perform on Saturday at Skytop with other festivities planned from 3 to 6:30-p.m. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
