Rutgers and Syracuse agree to series for 2020-21

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers has agreed to play Syracuse in a home-and-home series in football starting in 2020.

The Orange will play at High Point Solutions Stadium in 2020 and the Scarlet Knights will go north the following year to play at Carrier Dome.

The series replaces a previously scheduled home-and-home for Rutgers against UCLA. The Scarlet Knights dropped out of that series and will have to pay UCLA $500,000. About half of that amount will be saved by not having to send the team to California for two days.

Rutgers of the Big Ten and Syracuse of the ACC played for 33 consecutive seasons between 1980 and 2012. The run ended when the schools changed conferences.
