Fans looking for new ways to experience Syracuse football, without leaving the safety and comfort of home, can huddle up for “’Cuse on the Couch,” presented by KeyBank.
Produced by Syracuse Athletics , the virtual second-screen show premiered on Saturday, Sept. 26 before the home opener against Georgia Tech.
“’Cuse on the Couch” is available for free on Cuse.com or via the Cuse app on any mobile device.
Cuse TV host and producer Brian Higgins ’04 will anchor the coverage, which is augmented by live updates and in-game statistics, on-demand Syracuse football video content and a live social media feed.
Andrew Goodrich, deputy athletics director and chief marketing officer, says “’Cuse on the Couch” aims to elevate the virtual fan experience. “We want our fans to feel connected to the team and to each another. The show is a fun and interactive entertainment option, with lots of unique Syracuse content,” he adds.
The launch of “’Cuse on the Couch” coincides with the reopening of the University’s 40-year-old Stadium. Fresh from a yearlong, $118 million renovation, the iconic venue now boasts a new steel and fabric roof, a four-sided scoreboard suspended from the ceiling, a new sound and lighting system, and improved accessibility and Wi-Fi.
Syracuse Athletics is committed to re-creating—and ultimately enhancing—the gameday experience. Providing behind-the-scenes content during home games is one way the University is making live sports more engaging and accessible.
