SU faces the defending national champion Saturday night.

Although undefeated through four games, Syracuse still believes it has something to prove.

Especially with the defending NCAA champion coming to town.

With Notre Dame scheduled to invade SU Soccer Stadium on Saturday, the Orange is hoping to open its second Atlantic Coast Conference slate with a statement victory.

"They're a big team coming in here, and they're going to be a big test for us overall," senior defender Chris Makowski said. "We have to show them and the ACC that we are a good team, and we mean business."

Syracuse lost 3-0 thanks to a pair of set-piece goals by Notre Dame.

On a cold and wet Friday night, No. 4 Notre Dame shut out a helpless Syracuse squad, 3-0.

The Orange came into the game against Notre Dame with possibly the best of preparations, after having routed Manhattan 4-1 earlier in the week. But Friday’s match was a humbling experience, as Syracuse was outplayed and outmuscled throughout the contest.
