The second-ranked Syracuse Orange (26-1, 13-1 Big East) faceoff against the unranked Rutgers Scarlet Knights (12-14, 4-9 Big East) with a chance to secure the Big East regular season title.

The Orange come into the day with a two-game lead over both Marquette and Notre Dame in the standings, while Rutgers needs to find a way to hang on long enough to sneak into the Big East Tournament.

Syracuse may be favored heavily in this game, but every day in the Big East is a dogfight. Already this season, the Scarlet Knights have knocked off powerhouse conference foes in Connecticut, Notre Dame and Cincinnati. Could Rutgers do it again?
