SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Syracuse has played Georgetown at the Carrier Dome more than any other opponent, but few--if any--of those occasions have been as heavily-hyped as the forthcoming first-place matchup this Saturday.

The Orange and Hoyas will play in the Dome for the final time as members of the Big East with SU heading to the ACC this summer and Georgetown likely leaving in 2014 for a still-to-be-formed new league. It will be the teams' 31st faceoff in the Dome (SU is 22-8) and with an NCAA on-campus basketball record of 35,012 tickets sold it will be the 17th time the matchup has drawn 30,000 fans (SU is 10-6)--also the most of any opponent with the next-highest total being only seven each by UConn, Pittsburgh, St. John's, and Villanova.

Saturday's game tips off at 4 p.m. on CBS. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
