Syracuse adds Stony Brook to 2012 Football Schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

Syracuse OrangeThe Syracuse Orange have added the Stony Brook Seawolves to their 2012 football schedule, Stony Brook announced yesterday in their signing day release.

Syracuse will host Stony Brook at the Carrier Dome on Sept. 15, 2012. It will be the first ever meeting between the two schools.

Stony Brook is a member of the Big South Conference in the Football Championship Subdivision. The Seawolves finished the 2011 season 9-4 and lost in the 2nd round of the FCS playoffs.

The Orange are currently slated to open the 2012 season on Sept. 1 at home against Northwestern. Syracuse then takes on the USC Trojans at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ on Sept. 8.

After hosting Stony Brook, Syracuse travels to face the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Sept. 22.

Although the 2012 Big East football schedule has yet to be released, Syracuse should host Connecticut, Louisville and Pittsburgh and travel to Cincinnati, Rutgers and USF.

It’s looking more likely that West Virginia will compete in the Big 12 in 2012, so Syracuse will not face the Mountaineers. Instead, the Orange will need an extra non-conference game giving them six overall.

    A sign that the Big East will be losing West Virginia?

      Not necessarily. Big East teams have been playing five non-conference games for years now. This one gives Syracuse 4.

      Rumor has been spreading that the big east is trying to get boise to join in 2012 instead of 2013 to replace WVU !
