No team, even Alabama, has been a thorn in Clemson football’s side recently like the Syracuse Orange. In 2017, Dino Babers’ team stunned Clemson at the Carrier Dome, 27-24. Last season, the Tigers needed a fourth quarter comeback at home to beat the Orange 27-23.

Some of the shine came off of this game, which looked like it might be between 2-0 ranked teams, with Syracuse’s Week 2 shellacking at the hands of Maryland. The Orange were knocked off by Mike Locksley’s team down in College Park, 63-20.
There is still a ton of hype for the game up in Central New York, where the Dome will be sold out for the first time in years. The Tigers should expect a pretty rowdy atmosphere, which those who played in this game two years ago know.
‘Cuse and Clemson are getting prime time treatment for this one.
