Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Syracuse University may no longer be part of the Big East Conference, but the Villanova Wildcats will still be a part of their schedule.
Syracuse University announced that the two basketball programs have agreed to a home-and-home series.
The Wildcats will visit the Carrier Dome on Dec. 28, 2013 and the Orange will travel to the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia during the 2014-2015 season.
SU will play its first season as a full member of the Atlantic Coast Conference next year.
