SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Casey, Ryan and Mikey Powell will sign autographs for fans between 3:30 - 4:00 p.m. at the Carrier Dome's Orange Shop on Saturday, Feb. 25. A special halftime presentation will be made with the three members of Team USA.

The Orange kicks off its 87th varsity men's lacrosse season on Saturday, Feb. 25, against Army at 4 p.m.

The Orange and Black Knights each qualified for the NCAA Tournament last season and both were eliminated in the first round. The Black Knights were defeated by Georgetown in last year's NCAA Tournament, 16-6, while Syracuse lost a 16-15 decision to Massachusetts.

Syracuse, ranked No. 5 in this week's Inside Lacrosse Media Poll, posted a 7-6 record last season. No. 15-ranked Army finished the 2005 campaign with an 11-6 record and a 5-1 mark in the Patriot League.

This will be the 53rd meeting between Army and Syracuse in men's lacrosse. The Black Knights hold a 37-15 lead in the all-time series, but have failed to defeat the Orange since 1983. SU has won the last 10 meetings, including a 9-4 victory in last year's season opener, also at the Dome.
