We already know that, even after they leave the ACC for the Big Ten, the Maryland Terrapins would keep showing up on the Syracuse Orange's football schedule every once in a while. Now we know exactly when and where.
The Maryland football team has scheduled a home-and-home series with Syracuse, keeping at least one ACC program on the schedule after the Terrapins leap to the Big Ten next season. The Orange will host Maryland on Sept. 20, 2014, and visit College Park on Sept. 21, 2019, according to a finalized schedule obtained Thursday afternoon.
The 2014 non-conference schedule now includes a MetLife date with Notre Dame (which I guess is kinda-sorta an ACC game) and a home date with Maryland (which is now, oddly, not an ACC game). That leaves one spot for the obligatory FCS home game. You can also pencil in Duke & Pittsburgh and the 2014 ACC Coastal opponents.
Maryland is the only official opponent on the 2019 non-con schedule, though unofficially Northwestern is floating out there in some places.
