This is great news for the Orange, who now have officially completed their schedule. The Orange's schedule is anything but easy, but at least they have one. Winning six games and bowl eligibility will be more difficult than last year, but still plausible.
The better news for the Orange? Mike Murphy of CBS, who has yet to be proven wrong in this conference realignment saga, reports that the Big East is now "open" to the idea of Syracuse and Pittsburgh both leaving the conference after this season.
Both sides would than likely have to come to some agreement on a buy out clause as well as basketball season details, but I would place my money on all major sports programs being a part of the ACC in 2014.
Additionally, today will feature Syracuse players getting one last chance to impress scouts at Manley Field House. The Orange lineup will include the following, per official university media release:
Antwon Bailey, Van Chew, Jose Cruz, Olando Fisher, Dorian Graham, Michael Hay, Chandler Jones, Tombe Kose, Rob Long, Nick Provo, Kevyn Scott, Phillip Thomas, Andrew Tiller and Aaron Weaver.
