Syracuse women’s soccer will play nine regular season games against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents during its 2020 season. The Orange are coming off a season in which they finished near the basement of the ACC, having a record of 3-11-2 (1-7-1 ACC).
Nicky Adams enters her second season as the Orange’s head coach and is looking to bring Syracuse back over the .500 mark for the first time since 2012. SU’s lone conference victory last year came against Wake Forest, a team it won’t face in 2020.
The schedule features five home games and four road games, with Pittsburgh being the only team Syracuse plays twice. The season opens with three consecutive games on the road beginning with Pittsburgh on Sept. 17, followed by matches against Louisville and Notre Dame.
Syracuse opens at home on Oct. 15 against defending ACC champion North Carolina, which finished undefeated in conference play last season. Duke, Boston College and Pittsburgh come to SU Soccer Stadium and round out a string of four consecutive home games.
The Orange head to Miami before coming home to host Virginia and close out the regular season on Nov. 1, with the ACC tournament quarterfinals beginning Nov. 10.
