NEW YORK (AP) - Syracuse and St. John's, whose three-decade relationship as original members of the Big East Conference will end next season, will keep the 100-year rivalry going for at least the next two seasons.

The schools announced Wednesday that a game will be played at Madison Square Garden on Dec. 14, 2013, and they will meet again at the Carrier Dome at a date to be determined in 2014-15.

Syracuse will play in the Atlantic Coast Conference next season. St. John's is one of the seven Catholic schools that have decided to leave the Big East and form their own league.

Syracuse, currently ranked No. 6, is the fifth-winningest program all-time with 1,862 victories; St. John's is seventh with 1,750.

The Feb. 10 meeting at the Carrier Dome will be the 87th in a series that dates to 1912. The Orange hold a 49-37 edge in the series and have won seven straight.
