Five different scorers got on board for the team.

In its home debut, the 5th ranked Syracuse Orange extended its shutout streak to four with a commanding five-nil victory over Bucknell. The Orange outshot the Bison 18 to zero and didn’t surrender a single corner in the game.

Over the years, Syracuse University's changing logo reflects a desire to find a brand that will stand out from the rest.

If you don’t like the weather in Syracuse, just wait a few minutes for it to change. Some might argue the same could be said about the Syracuse University logo.

“Most professional and college teams have some kind of history of logo evolution,” said Marc Donabella, Associate Director of athletics and of marketing at Syracuse University.

“There are many factors that affect marketing trends and as technology and the way consumers view your logo evolve, so must the brand,” he added.

Although Syracuse has the largest indoor arena within 260 miles, major concerts and community events are rare because of its commitment to Orange athletics and campus activities.

Looming over the Syracuse skyline is a 527,320 square foot mass of gray cement on the campus of Syracuse University. Though bland to the eye on its exterior, the building frequently radiates orange and the emotion of fervent fans from the inside.

The Carrier Dome is a staple of the university, providing a lifetime of memories for its guests. It welcomes students on preview days, bids them farewell during commencement and hosts countless events in between.

Syracuse pulled out the overtime win in a hard fought contest between the two Central New York rivals despite a dominant performance from Hobart goalie Max Silberlicht.

The Central New York Lacrosse rivalry between the Syracuse Orange (5-1, Big East 1-0) and the Hobart Statesmen (2-4, 0-1 ECAC) continued Tuesday night when the Orange squeaked by with a 9-8 overtime win at a cold and wet McCooey Field in Geneva, N.Y.

A crowd of 2,000 came out in full force despite the conditions, peppering SU players with unmentionable chants about their mothers and sisters and even a reappearance of the dead fish toss onto the turf.
