New York College Classic Schedule

College football doesn't get much better than this, as the New York College Classic is just one of those games that tends to bring out the very best in the sport. Come out and see a great game loaded with some of the stars of both today and tomorrow and you'll be glad that you're not still sitting on your couch. Featuring some of the titans of today's college football, you can count on seeing plenty of electrifying runs, spectacular snags and pinpoint throws that will probably have you jumping clean out of your seat on the regular as the Orange and Irish clash on the gridiron.

The New York College Classic is an annual college football game held at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey each fall which pits the Notre Dame Fighting Irish against the Syracuse Orange. This is your opportunity to see two of the most storied college football teams of all-time facing off against one another in an early season match up that could have big time national title implications. Played at a neutral site you can expect both teams to have plenty of fans filling the stadium making for an unforgettable atmosphere for both the fans and the participants in the game.

This year's game will be held at Met Life Stadium, home of the NFL's New York Giants and New York Jets a state of the art new arena that is also the home of the 2014 Super Bowl. If you have never been to a college football game you simply owe it to yourself to head out to one and experience all of the fun before, during, and after the game. Even if you have been to college football games, the New York College Classic is an experience like no other, making it the place to be if you're looking for a combination of tradition, football excellence and an unforgettable atmosphere.

The Teams

Syracuse played its first season of college football in 1889 and has numerous dedicated fans who have grown up loving the program whether or not they are current students or alumni. The Orange have an impressive 15-9-1 record in bowl games alongside having won five conference titles and a national championship in 1959. So far, 15 former Orange football players have been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, most recently Art Monk who was inducted in 2012. The Orange play their home games in the Carrier Dome, which is the largest domed stadium on any college campus in the country and also routinely holds some of the biggest college basketball games each and every season.

On other side of the line of scrimmage, Notre Dame is one of the few universities in the country who the mere mention of their name brings up the thought of college football. The Fighting Irish have had a football team since 1887 and possess on of the proudest and most storied traditions in all of college football. They have won 11 national titles, most recently in 1988, and produced seven Heisman trophy winners. 50 former Fighting Irish players and coaches have been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, including former tight end Dave Casper, who was inducted in 2012. With two teams that have such a rich tradition and great players to boot, it doesn't get any better than coming out to see an annual tradition that continues to bring in fans by the tens of thousands for a reason.

The Experience

Upon entering MetLife Stadium, fans are well aware that they are about to see a college football game unlike any other. The players warming up on the field are visibly fighting off nerves and trying to get out all of the jitters before the opening kickoff. The crowd is full of players' families, alumni, hordes of journalists and sports writers, locals who are always thrilled to take part in the annual tradition, and college football fanatics who are hoping to see another historic college football match up. The pageantry of the cheerleaders, mascots, marching bands, and wild fans are enough to get you out of your seat, and then the game begins. Thunderous, bone-rattling hits, incredible displays of speed and agility, clutch field goals, and game-breaking plays fill up the day of world class college football. By the time the clock is winding down in the fourth quarter, you'll suddenly realize with crystal clarity why it doesn't get any better than the live college football experience if spectator sports are you thing.

The Players

Featuring two schools with such historic programs it can be no wonder that the New York C0llege Classic annually features many of the best amateur football players in the world competing with and against one another on a major stage. Countless players from both Syracuse and Notre Dame have gone on to have big impacts in the NFL in addition to being major college football superstars. Notre Dame and Syracuse annually recruit some of the most coveted high school football players in the country to come don their uniforms and each year both teams have major impact on the college football landscape. This year the New York College Classic will be extra special as both teams will be competing against one another as members in the early going of the new ACC.


Did you know that Syracuse alumnus Donovan McNabb was actually a three-time Big East Offensive Player of the Year?

For Orange fans, it wasn't much of a surprise to see McNabb get snapped up by the Philadelphia Eagles with the second pick in the first round in 1999. Though the Eagles didn't warm to him exactly right off the bat, his natural abilities and renowned leadership, which took the Eagles to plenty of winning seasons and nearly a Super Bowl, eventually won over the Eagles and he would go down as one of the greatest players in franchise history. To this day, McNabb is still considered one of the very best players in Syracuse football history as well, putting him in the same breath as guys like Ernie Banks and Jim Brown.
