Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Bus drivers in the city of Syracuse will be showing their Orange pride this weekend as SU prepares to face Duke in the Carrier Dome.

According to a Centro spokesperson, drivers will wear orange in support of the hometown's college basketball team.

In addition, Centro buses may display a brief message, "Beat Duke" on their destination signs, in addition to the standard route name and number.

ESPN's College GameDay crew will visit the Salt City for the much-anticipated game between the Orange – the consensus No. 2 men's college basketball team – and the Duke Blue Devils.

Perennial national power Duke is ranked No. 16 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches poll and No. 17 in the Associated Press poll.

SU heads in to the game 20-0 in its first season as a full member of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
