For the most diehard Syracuse fans, a trip to Omaha is a must. 

Whether by road,

or by air,

the decision to travel thousands of miles to witness a game you can watch from the comfort of your home is a no brainer.

For those taking to the skies, a fourth Nor'easter in as many weeks has put a strain on air travel in the Northeast. "If they are flying out this morning especially connecting in the north-east we still have snow and gusting winds hampering airports in New York, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., and Boston," says NewsRadio 570 WSYR Aviation Expert Jay Ratliff. "That will improve as the day progresses. If you're flying out late today or tomorrow you should be in pretty good shape."

When fans arrive however, they should expect conditions inside and outside the arena to be less than inviting. Folks in Nebraska have been ragging on Syracuse ever since a reporter tweeted what she thought she overheard a Syracuse player say in the locker room after the Michigan State upset on Sunday.

The media in Nebraska clapped back. . . 

Then folks in Nebraska clapped back. . . 

We could go on, and on,

and on.

Needless to say the folks in Omaha will not be particularly happy to see the 'Cuse fans roll into town, especially in their conspicuous shade of bright Orange.

Outside the CenturyLink Center Omaha, conditions will be about as dreary.  "It will be soggy in Omaha," says NewsRadio 570 WSYR Meteorologist Bill Daeger. "We're looking at rain and thunder moving into Omaha later tomorrow and that will continue into tomorrow night. It will be dry inside, but outside temperatures will be in the 40s with a gusty wind."

For those less inclined to fly across the country, deal with cruddy weather, and slightly less cordial mid-westerners, you can watch the game tomorrow night on CBS 5. Tip off is scheduled for 9:37 p.m. but will likely start late.
