Syracuse football (3-4, 1-2) hosts Wake Forest (4-4, 2-3) this Saturday. The last time the Orange was in action SU “got (its) rumps kicked” in the words of head Coach Scott Shafer following the beat down in Atlanta.

Syracuse basketball gets its season underway Friday night with an exhibition game against Holy Family University. The Orange is coming off one of its most successful seasons in recent memory, heading to the Final Four in Atlanta last April. SU surprised many after being left for dead at the end of the regular season, but after a Big East Tournament appearance and 4 straight wins in the NCAA Tournament in March before its loss to Michigan, the Orange is back ready to go in 2013.
The Legends of Jazz concert series is bringing Grammy-nominated singer Gregory Porter to Onondaga Community College this Friday. Porter is currently touring in support of his latest album “Liquid Spirit.”
