SU looks to pack the Dome for final home football game of the season

Syracuse University has a potential bowl bid on the line when they take on Boston College on Saturday. They’re hoping fans pack the Dome for the last home football game of the season – which also happens to be Senior Day.
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Syracuse University has a potential bowl bid on the line when they take on Boston College on Saturday.

They’re hoping fans pack the Dome for the last home football game of the season – which also happens to be Senior Day.

The crowd for last weekend’s game against Pittsburgh fell far short of capacity.

This week, the school is trying a few tricks to bring Orange Nation out to root on the team.

SU’s biggest home game attendance of the season thus far was the combination of the first ACC game for the Orange, Homecoming and third ranked Clemson. The game was nearly sold out at the Dome.

But the crowds have dropped off rather noticeably over the course of the season, with plenty of silver seats to be seen last weekend against rival Pittsburgh.

"When we don't have the Dome as full as we would like it to be, I'm disappointed in myself because I really want this to be a community effort and a community pride in what we're trying to do here,” said SU head coach Scott Shafer.

Boston College boasts the nation’s top rusher, Andre Williams, when it comes to the Dome and SU has the chance to become bowl eligible – making Saturday’s game one of the most important of the season.

"The expectation right now is well they need to be doing better than Pinstripe Bowl, they need to be getting nine or 10 wins and then the fans will come back. I think it's awfully tough to recruit when you go to your biggest game and a team everyone is calling your rival and the Dome is half full at best,” said Upon Further Review co-host Chris McManus.

SU is doing its part to make sure fans fill up the Dome for Saturday's game against BC – it’s offering a special package, four tickets for $44.

“North Carolina State is 1-9 and they haven't won a game in the ACC yet this year and the cheapest ticket in the building is $50 and Syracuse is giving 4 for $44 and North Carolina State is filling it up,” McManus said.

Fans will need to use a special promotional code to purchase the ticket special: FANTHX44.

This promo code will also be accepted in person or on the phone for people that have outdated browsers.

All military with appropriate identification will also be able to get a free ticket at the ticket window inside Gate B at the start of the game.
