The ACC ends the day with a perfect 8-0 record in nonconference games, including the most nonconference road wins in any week in league history (five). A top 5 showdown awaits next week between Louisville and Clemson -- yet another huge spotlight ready to shine on the league.

David M. Hale ESPN Staff Writer 

Duke, Wake Forest, Syracuse and Virginia were all underdogs by a combined 36.5 points. They went 4-0 with a combined 29-point margin of victory. Good day for the ACC, which is 7-0 in non-conference play, pending Louisville's trip to Marshall tonight.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Syracuse's Amba Etta-Tawo had a school-record 270 receiving yards in the Orange's win at Connecticut. The previous record (249 by Scott Schwedes against Boston College) was set in 1985. The 270 yards are the fourth-most in a game in ACC history.

Syracuse beat former Big East rival UConn thanks for another big day from Amba Etta-Tawo, who had a school-record 270 yards receiving and two touchdown catches. In four games, he has 706 yards receiving. But two big defensive plays helped too -- a pick-6 and fourth-quarter goal line stand were also big reasons for the win.

Syracuse has given up its fair share of big plays on defense this season, but the Orange D has been known to make a few plays of its own. A pick-6 from Cordell Hudson off a tipped pass gave the Orange a 24-17 lead. That was their fifth defensive touchdown since the start of last season, tied for third in FBS over that span.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Syracuse's Amba Etta-Tawo entered Saturday as the most prolific receiver in the ACC and kept up his hot start early against UConn with two touchdown receptions and 118 yards. Etta-Tawo has averaged 145.3 receiving yards per game and is clearly on pace for more.
