Saw this the other day... it's usually a choice between playing Syracuse right at the beginning of the season, or playing them the week between Christmas and New Years' Day, and they chose the former. Usually not a fan of starting the season with a P6 opponent, but it will make an intriguing storyline: Jimmy Boeheim playing his first game for Cornell against his dad.
Also, Cuse is looking like a bubble team again this year, so this should provide the usual test one expects from a power team, without turning into a demoralizing blowout at the beginning of the year.
More details regarding the schedule should start to emerge at the beginning of next month, once other teams start to release their 2017-18 slates.
