The Syracuse Orange football program, after playing in the 2012 New Era Pinstripe Bowl, officially competed in their final game as a Big East Conference member.
From there, Orange head coach Doug Marrone moved on to the NFL to take the same position for the Buffalo Bills.
Following Marrone were a slew of his assistants, as Scott Shafer was elevated from defensive coordinator to head coach.
Shafer maintained two members of the former Syracuse staff, with defensive line coach Tim Daoust and wide receivers coach Rob Moore, while bringing in his own team to face-off against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents for the first time.
They now know what teams they will play when in their conference as well as outside of the ACC. All matches are located below:
