Inside Syracuse Athletics with AD John Wildhack
With the number 1 team in the country coming to Syracuse this weekend, the Carrier Dome is already sold out but athletic director John Wildhack has a message for the fans, especially the students: bring the noise. The 'Cuse stunned Clemson in 2017 in a 27-24 upset as the last team to beat the Tigers in the regular season the last two seasons.
Saturday's night's sellout for the Orange will be the ninth sellout in football program history inside the Carrier Dome; in excess of 49,000 fans. This matchup will have a different feel to it before kickoff compared to two years ago, however. This Syracuse team entered the season with high expectations after a 10-3 season in 2018 with a bowl victory over West Virginia.
In our conversation with John Wildhack on Friday afternoon, we also discussed the men's basketball team's season opener against the defending national champs, the launch of the ACC Network and the men's lacrosse team coming to UAlbany for the first time ever in the spring of 2020.
