On Saturday, Boston College and Syracuse will meet on the gridiron for the first time as members of the Atlantic Coast Conference and just the second time since 2004; rekindling a dormant Big East rivalry. Boston College senior running back Andre Williams is back where it all began, looking for a big day to propel him to New York City for the Heisman Trophy presentation. The Orange, stuck on five wins and needing one more to become bowl eligible, seem to be having some trouble filling the Dome for Senior Day.
That's understandable, I guess, as students will be out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday and Christmas shopping is in full swing. Syracuse's announced attendance of 35,317 vs. Pittsburgh on Saturday was the second lowest home attendance total of the season, ahead of only the Wagner game. Reports were that the Dome was half full at best.
To help fill the Dome, Syracuse is offering a number of ticket deals for Saturday's game. Here are some of those offers:
4 tickets for $44
Fans can purchase four tickets for $44 by visiting this link and using the promo code "FANTHX44"Complimentary tickets for non-profit or income-limited organizations

Free tickets for the military
SU is offering two complimentary tickets to all military members who show their military ID on Saturday inside the Gate B ticket office starting at 2:00 p.m.
Four tickets for $44? What a steal. Awfully nice of Syracuse to help generate even more buzz and awareness for Andre Williams' Heisman campaign.
