Cornell-Syracuse Rounds Out The 2010-11 Schedule

ITHACA, N.Y. -- A pair of Sweet 16 teams will matchup in the Carrier Dome as Cornell visits Syracuse on Tuesday, Nov. 30. The contest rounds out Cornell's 28-game 2010-11 schedule and will provide one of the top non-conference tests for a Big Red team looking a fourth straight Ivy League title.

Syracuse leads the all-time series 86-31 and carries a 32-game win streak into the contest, including an 88-73 triumph last year. Cornell is 1-19 all-time at the Carrier Dome (0-18 vs. the Orange). It will be the first trip to the Dome since the storybook 2009-10 season came to an end in the NCAA Regional Semifinals to No. 1 seed Kentucky in front of more than 22,000 partisan Big Red fans.

This will be the fourth straight year Cornell and Syracuse will have played at the Carrier Dome in November or December.

Glad I was wrong in thinking a Big East opponent other than Syracuse would be announced. Just find it curious why this was not announced simultaneously with the rest of the schedule. Also find it annoying that the Orange won't come to play in Ithaca. In the good old days, when I was in school, the teams played a home-and-home set each season. And we WON a lot of the games - even against the Dave Bing - Jim Boeheim duo.
