SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- You can feel the excitement for the season outside the Dome as well.
Manny's on the SU Hill is already getting fans amped up for the Orange's matchup with the Blue Devils. They created "Beat Duke" shirts and the store's general manager says they're selling fast, even though the game is still months away.
"I think people are just really excited in general about the ACC, and in particular Duke, so we thought we'd get a head start on it and start creating a new rivalry. We lost Georgetown as a rivalry, so let's start with a new one and get people talking about it right away," said Mike Theiss, Manney's General Manager.
SU and Duke will face off at the Carrier Dome on Saturday February 1st.
