SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Two of the biggest rivals in the Big East Conference, Syracuse and Georgetown, will square off at the Carrier Dome Wednesday night. Some fans are already lining up to make sure they get great seats for the game.
Dozens of students have been camping out for days outside Gate E. A group we spoke with said they actually pitched their tents on Friday morning to make sure they're sitting courtside when the Hoyas come to town. Those students say they have camped out for every Big East home game this season, but this is the big one.
"Our first day here, we had home to the Dome, where all of the freshmen went to the Dome. We learned all of the chants for football and basketball, and the first thing they told us was that Georgetown was our rival. It's not Villanova, it's not UConn, it's Georgetown - no matter what the rankings are, it's Georgetown. So I think everybody regardless if this is the only game they go to all year they come for Georgetown," said Jocelyn Delaney, SU freshman.
SU and Georgetown tip off at 7 p.m. Wednesday. If you can't make it to the game, it airs nationally on ESPN.
