  • A post on Twitter in April 2013, which was attributed to USA Today, claims that more than 75 teams have played multiple games against Syracuse at the Carrier Dome (which opened in 1980). Only one of those teams, UMass, has a winning record there.1)
  • UMass is 2-0 against Syracuse at the Carrier Dome, both games coming in the 2007-08 season. That feat marked the first time that Syracuse lost twice to the same team in the same season at the Carrier Dome, and the first time in any Syracuse venue since 1922-23.2)3) The Carrier Dome mark still stands, through the end of the 2021-22 season.4)
