    Anyone in Upstate/Central NY planning on going to the game at Death Valley in September. I am strongly considering it, but don't have the time to turn it into a New Orleans vacation. Any thoughts on getting there and getting out? If you fly into New Orleans, is there a shuttle that gets you up to Baton Rouge? Is it better just to fly into Baton Rouge? Is SU going to do a charter of some sort?

    Any insights are appreciated.

    I will definitely be going...actually already tentatively reserved a room in NOLA. We will be staying in NOLA for 3-4 days...probably flying from NC but not 100% on that yet. Maybe if we had a good contingent of SU fans staying in the city then there would be the possibility of getting together for a bus or shuttle to and from the game.

    I can't provide any insight, but will be there 100%. We have 6+ other Alaskans already committed for this trip with us.

    Not in upstate NY (VA) but I'm planning on going. Won't know for sure until the end of summer. I'm also planning on going to Japan for a couple weeks next summer, so money and PTO will be factors since I'd like to make it an extended weekend trip. Never been down there before. A game at LSU is on my bucket list. I can't believe I have an opportunity to see Cuse play there.

    Without question will be down there for it. Combine Cuse game with my favorite city & what I'd consider the best college football atmosphere in the country. I imagine that it will be a lot more expensive to fly into Baton Rouge but the drive from Nola is really simple and you can make a pit stop in Abita Springs at the Abita brewery and take a tour of the brewery which includes a free 10 minute free for all at their taps.

    anyone figure out the best way to fly down there that time of year? figure you cant fly out of Syr, Roch, Buffalo do get more choices but I think there is no direct flights from up here so its a matter of how you want to connect

    also seems like its cheaper to fly into New Orleans but you need to figure on how to get the 70 miles to the game.

    My bro in law and I are planning on it. He'll be jetting out of Syr., and me from Jersey. I've been looking forward to this one for awhile!

    We are a few hours from Baton Rouge hoping to make the trip. Originally from Albany area. I'll be honest haven't been to Syracuse games because they rarely play anywhere close and I am a big time Miami fan and attend a lot their games.

    Did make it to Fayetteville to see the BB team beat Arkansas though

    At this point it's a coin flip between Baton Rouge and Miami, but a homecoming for CajunCuse would be hard to pass up!
