Tailgating is a big deal at Syracuse, and it is best to get here around three to four hours in advance if you want to get a good spot. Also, the best place to tailgate is the West Stadium Lot, which is home to some of Syracuse’s biggest fans and largest tailgates.
Syracuse tends to have a lot of smaller tailgates since there is not a ton of parking available around the dome. This means that you’ll want to get to the game early to get a good spot. However, you’ll find plenty of food, drinks, and pre-game parties as fans here love to cheer on their Orange.
Additionally, make your way to The Quad to see The Quad March and Ernie Davis Statue before the game. There’s a lot to see and do before an Orange football game, so arrive early and take it all in.
