G-Pass not redeemable with mobile app. Use for admission at MetLife Stadium on 9/8 at 3:30PM. Must show valid ID matching name on Groupon. Must provide first and last name upon purchase, which Groupon will provide to facilitate redemption. Refundable only on day of purchase. Must purchase together to sit together. Discount reflects Ticketmaster's current ticket prices - price may differ on day of event. Football teams are constantly finding new ways to outwit their opponents, from adopting a West Coast offense to hiring a head coach. See which play they call next with this GrouponLive deal to see New York's College Classic—a game between the Syracuse Orange and USC Trojans at MetLife Stadium on Saturday, September 8, at 3:30 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call. Gates open one hour before kickoff. Choose between the following options: For $42, you get one G-Pass for lower-level end-zone seating in section 128 (up to an $85.20 value, including fees). For $52, you get one G-Pass for lower-level sideline seating in section 118 (up to a $105.60 value, including fees). Venturing outside their respective home fields of the Carrier Dome and Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the Syracuse Orange and USC Trojans meet on neutral ground, MetLife Stadium, for a rematch of last year's 38–17 USC victory on the West Coast. The Orange rally behind head coach Doug Marrone, the offensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints during their ascendant 2006 season. He brings the same offensive knowhow he brought to Drew Brees in '06 to current Syracuse starting QB Ryan Nassib, who last year set the school's single-season records in completions and yards and found the end zone 22 times without even once passing the ball to a golden retriever. On the other side of the line of scrimmage, QB Matt Barkley leads the No. 1–ranked Trojans into battle hoping to secure the Heisman Trophy at year's end. Home to the NFL's New York teams, MetLife Stadium brings the game to life with grandeur unlike anything on either college's home turf. In the corners of the arena, four 30'x118' HD video screens broadcast hard hits and long completions at titanic size, and more than 2,100 HD monitors relay the on-field action throughout the stadium, ensuring fans won't miss a moment of action while grabbing concessions or asking a mascot for fashion tips.
Doug Gottlieb's latest anti-Syracuse rant on why 31-1 isn't really that good. North Carolina is better.
Panoramic view of the Carrier Dome crowd on March 3, 2012. Senior Day vs. Louisville with 33,205 people attending, the 5th largest crowd ever to see basketball in the Dome. Photo was taken from Section 122. Syracuse won 58-49 to capture their 30th win and the regular season Big East Championship.

Seth Davis posted an article at SI.com where coaches commented on Other team's weaknesses. Here's what two anonymous Big East coaches said about us: Syracuse: The team's Achilles' heel is defensive rebounding because Rakim Christmas and Fab Melo don't rebound out of their area very well. They don't go get it like Arinze Onuaku. Also, as soon as a shot goes up, their guards are at half-court because they want to run, so they're not getting in there to help on the boards. If they get a wrong matchup where a team has three perimeter shooters and someone who can play in the high post, they could get beat. A lot of those mid-major teams play like that. Scoop Jardine isn't their most talented player, but he's their most important. The reason they win so many close games is because of his poise and composure. Dion Waiters really wants to get to the basket, so you have to make him take a contested jump shot, even though he can hit it. Teams that are very organized offensively and have a high basketball IQ would give them trouble. Teams like Butler the last couple of years, or Notre Dame this year. Georgetown is another perfect example. Wisconsin-Syracuse would be a very interesting battle.http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/writers/seth_davis/02/29/scouting.reports/index.html?xid=siextra_030212
Does James Southerland moonlight on Showtime's Californication? There is a rapper named Apocalypse on the show that hires Hank Moody to write a script for him. The rapper is actually Wu Tang Clan member RZA, but I think there is a resemblence to JSouth.

Uconn wears Nike Elite Platinum uniforms and loses to Notre Dame. Coincidence?
Six weeks at No. 1 and not a peep about SU in Sports Illustrated...and then I open up the most recent edition to find this.
South Bend is a just a short trip down I-90 from the Syracuse city-state. Make a left on I-90 and stop when you get to South Bend. (albeit 589 miles) Therefore, to the national media, this is a "home" game for 'Cuse.
