SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Syracuse and Army West Point have agreed to a future football series with four games scheduled between 2023-26. The Orange will host the Black Knights in the Carrier Dome on Sept. 23, 2023 and Sept. 27, 2025. Syracuse travels to West Point for games on Sept. 21, 2024 and Sept. 26, 2026.
“We are thrilled to add this football series to an already powerful relationship,” said Syracuse Director of Athletics John Wildhack. “We have a long history with Army West Point on the football field and the University is a leader in supporting veterans and military families. We look forward to having the tradition and pageantry of the Army West Point program in the Carrier Dome for our fans to enjoy.”
The series with Army West Point adds to the relationship between Syracuse University and the military. The Orange football program is engaged in the program’s fifth training camp trip to Fort Drum, a partnership that began in 2012. Today the team is spending the day at the U.S. Army post participating in community engagement and team-building activities with members of the 10th Mountain Division’s 2nd Brigade Combat Team.
“We’re excited to renew our series with Syracuse,” Army West Point Director of Athletics Boo Corrigan said. “Both institutions have a proud football tradition and it is something that just makes sense. The chance to get to Upstate New York, where there is a strong military presence with the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum, allows us to showcase our cadet-athletes in another region of the Northeast. The new agreement also allows the people of New York City, including alumni from both schools, the opportunity to visit West Point and see two of the top programs in the tri-state area.”
