The Syracuse University Orangemen look to redeem their 2011
season when the won five games and lost seven (and went 1-for-6 in the
Big East) on Saturday, Sept. 1, at noon. The Wildcats of Northwestern University enter the Carrier Dome,
900 Irving Ave., for the first time in three years; that game, Sept.
20, 2009, resulted in a 37-24 Orange victory. Many questions abound for
head coach Doug Marrone (pictured from the Nov. 26, 2011 game
against Cincinnati) this season, and he no doubt hopes to answer a good
deal of them with an opening game victory. Tickets range in price from
$29 to $150 and do not include a complimentary Dome Dog. For tickets,
