SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WHEC) — The world of college football is in an incredible state of flux amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Already Monday there were conflicting reports about whether the Big Ten conference would even have games at all this season, but in Syracuse, it appears that it's business as usual.


Monday was an off day for the players, but the Orange did practice over the weekend.

It's early in the season so the practices are still limited-contact and without full pads.

Last week the ACC released its football schedule and Monday Head Coach Dino Babers said that until he's told otherwise, the Syracuse Orange will be ready to play by September.

"These conferences are all individual things, there's always the domino effect, but there's also, you could have a conference that says we're going to play no matter what and they play,” Babers said. “So until they tell us that we can't we're going to act like we can, and our job is to get ready and give everybody the opportunity to watch college football."

Right now, Syracuse's first game is scheduled for Sept. 12 on the road against North Carolina.

They're scheduled to play 10 ACC games with their lone non-conference game being a home game against Liberty.
