This season marks the 20th meeting between the Statesmen and the Orange for the Kraus-Simmon Trophy. Originally contested in 1986, the trophy honors National Lacrosse Hall of Fame Hobart Coach Babe Kraus and longtime Syracuse boss Roy Simmons Sr. The Statesmen captured the initial victory, but the Orange have secured the cup every year since.
Overall, the two schools have met 90 times since 1916, with the Orange holding a 64-24-2 record.
