ND vs. Syracuse at Yankee Stadium 11/17

by Buffalo @, The Dirty South, Thursday, December 07, 2017, 12:08

Thoughts on this?

It seems like another self-inflicted wound.

Our open date falls on the second weekend of Fall break. Starting October 27, we play:

at Navy (IN SAN DIEGO)

at Northwestern (Chicago)

vs FSU

vs Syracuse (IN NEW YORK)

at Southern Cal

The Navy game will require a major time change and travel through the night on the way home. The Syracuse game will be a night game, and also will likely require travel home through the night.

I guess one could argue that this looks like 2010, when we played this slate:

11/6 OPEN
11/13 vs Tulsa (South Bend)
11/20 vs Army (Yankee Stadium)
11/27 at SC (L.A.)

I think it is pretty clear that next year's FSU-Syracuse-SC opponents are better than '10's slate.

I have a difficult time seeing how moving the Syracuse game to NY helps the football program (certainly not on balance).
