The last time I saw the Syracuse Orange visit the Coliseum was in 1967, when they were known as the Syracuse Orangemen. In those days, SU was going through an assembly line of running backs that rivaled even John McKay's conveyor belt of tailbacks.

It was my senior year at old Alhambra High School. Syracuse was playing UCLA, and I was there at the Coliseum with my father and classmate Tim Caropino, who was being recruited by the Bruins as a fullback.
