SYRACUSE, N.Y. (SYRACUSE ATHLETICS) — Syracuse will play UNLV for the first time in program history when the Orange travel to Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Oct. 5.

The announcement solidifies Syracuse’s 2024 opponents at an exciting time for ‘Cuse fans. This season will be the first of the Fran Brown era, the JMA Wireless Dome transformation project is set to feature new seating throughout the venue and it’ll also be the first season of the expanded ACC.

The UNLV game serves as a replacement for the previously announced game at Army, which joined the American Athletic Conference and had to restructure its schedule as a result.

“Adding UNLV provides our student-athletes with another strong non-conference opponent and an exciting venue for Orange fans to visit,” said Director of Athletics John Wildhack. “It’s been over a decade since we’ve played a game in the Pacific Time Zone. We look forward to seeing Syracuse fans and alumni from across the country have more opportunities to come and support their team with this game and the expansion of the ACC.”

The Rebels are coming off a nine-win regular season in 2023 and an appearance in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl. Allegiant Stadium is shared with the Las Vegas Raiders and is the host of this year’s Super Bowl.

The complete football schedule will be announced on Wednesday at 5 p.m. during the ACC Huddle: 2024 Football Schedule Release show that will be televised on ACC Network and ESPN2.
