SYRACUSE, N.Y. - The Syracuse football team is not the only Orange squad hosting a highly-ranked ACC opponent on Saturday as the No. 5 SU field hockey team will battle No. 4 Virginia beforehand.
The matchup marks the fifth time in 10 games this season that Syracuse has faced a ranked opponent with four of those being in the top-10. It also marks the Orange's first-ever ACC home game.
Gametime is set for 1 p.m. and the team is hoping some of the football tailgaters will filter in to lend their support on their way to the Carrier Dome.
