It’s a two-sport, two-day doubleheader this weekend at the Carrier Dome.
Tonight at 7, the men’s basketball team hosts Cornell in the 2017-18 season opener.
The Orange will be introducing plenty of new faces to the Dome crowd, but the most noteworthy newcomer will be Cornell freshman Jimmy Boeheim, who will make his college debut against his father’s team.
And tomorrow afternoon at 3, the football team welcomes Wake Forest to town in a borderline must-win for Dino Babers’ squad.
They’re 4-5 with 3 games left, meaning a loss to the Demon Deacons would force them to beat Louisville on the road and Boston College at home in the finale to get to 6 wins and gain bowl eligibility.
