Syracuse has been ranked No. 7 by Inside Lacrosse’s Face-Off Yearbook Top 20. Its 2017 complete schedule was announced Thursday afternoon. And after its fifth consecutive trip to the final four, Syracuse faces its toughest schedule to date. Fourteen of SU’s 18 opponents qualified for the NCAA tournament last spring.

The Orange needs to replace its top four scorers from last year’s national semifinal team. Syracuse, which finished 2016 at 19-6, opens on Feb. 11, when it hosts No.17 Boston College. It faces six preseason top-10 opponents this season, three of which are in the Atlantic Coast Conference with SU. Included in the Orange’s schedule is a mid-March trip to No.2 Maryland. The Terrapins ended the Orange’s season in each of the last four years.
