The Syracuse Orangemen and Michigan State Spartans first played in 1929, and the two teams would meet eleven times from 1929 to 1946, with the Spartans winning six of those games.

Syracuse played Michigan State in the 1977 Carrier Classic and the Orangemen led by Marty Byrnes beat the Spartans and their famed point guard Magic Johnson 75-67.

Michigan State beat Syracuse 78-58 in the 2000 NCAA Sweet Sixteen. The Orange returned the favor upsetting the highly favored Spartans in 2018 as the Orange advanced to the Sweet Sixteen. The Orange have won five straight against Michigan State since then.

Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim was 1-0 versus Jud Heathcote, and 5-1 versus Tom Izzo.
