Syracuse football will try to improve to 4-0 for the second straight season when they host Army on Saturday at noon.

Both Syracuse and Army are coming off big road wins last weekend. Army improved to 2-1 with a 37-29 victory at UTSA, while the Orange won at Ross-Ade Stadium for the first time, avenging a loss at Purdue in the 2004 season opener. The all-time series with the Black Knights dates back to 1899, the first year of Syracuse football. The Orange have won 11 of the 21 meetings, including the last three.
