The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - SPORTS -

Since the heady days of Dono­van McNabb and Dwight Freeney two decades ago, Syra­cuse has strug­gled at the gate at home. Af­ter Syra­cuse joined the ACC in 2013, Clem­son was the first league foe to visit the Car­rier Dome and the game drew 48,961 fans, just shy of a sell­out. That’s the sec­ond-best turnout of this cen­tury at the Or­ange’s in­door home, eclipsed only by the 49,033 that turned out for Vir­ginia Tech in 2000. Clem­son won its sec­ond visit to the dome two years ago, 37-27, and only 36,736 showed up to see the top-ranked team in the na­tion.
