The Orange visit the Gophers on Saturday (8 p.m. ET on Big Ten Network).

For the first time since 1996, the Syracuse Orange football program will travel to play the Minnesota Golden Gophers Saturday in a non-conference contest at TCF Bank Stadium (8 p.m. ET on Big Ten Network). The Orange (1-2) are coming off their first victory of the season, a 28-17 triumph over the FCS' Stony Brook Seawolves, while the Gophers (3-0) are coming off a 28-23 victory over Western Michigan.

Minnesota enters the match up looking for its third straight victory over the Orange, who last lost to the Gophers in the 2009 season opener, 23-20, in Doug Marrone's head coaching debut. Already this season, the Gophers have defeated the UNLV Runnin' Rebels (30-27), New Hampshire Wildcats (44-7) and Western Michigan Broncos (28-23).

For SU, this will be its second game against a Big Ten Conference foe this season. In this year's season opener, the Orange lost, 42-41, to the Northwestern Wildcats. From there, SU lost to the then No. 2-ranked USC Trojans (42-29) and last week defeated Stony Brook.

The Orange are looking for their first road victory over a Big Ten opponent since '06 when they beat Illinois, 31-21.
