DeShone Kizer talks about Brian Kelly saying the coach needs to turn up the intensity on the sidelines:

James Onwualu has been very honest and thoughtful in speaking about the coordinator change this week from Brian VanGorder to Greg Hudson. Onwualu came to ND as a WR before switching to LB, and he said he thanked VanGorder for the opportunity since he was the one who invested in him on that side of the ball: "Obviously everybody was talking about it -- even our student section seemed to have a strong stance on that. But it was shocking to me, this is the only defensive experience I've ever had. Really all I knew defensively. So it's difficult for some older guys, and me included, to put that aside and take the next step into something new. I'll continue my relationship with (VanGorder) and possibly still learn things from him but I'm on to the next step."

Dino Babers gave a funny answer when he was asked what advice he'd give other opponents who have to prepare for Louisville QB Lamar Jackson: "Based off our performance, I don't have the right to give an opinion on that." Syracuse lost at home to Louisville 62-28 in Week 2.

Don't ask Syracuse coach Dino Babers how to stop Louisville's Lamar Jackson. Against the Orange, the Heisman front runner was one rushing yard from becoming the first FBS quarterback to rush for 200 yards and pass for 400 in a game. "Based on our defensive performance," he said, "I don't have the right to have an opinion on [stopping Jackson]."

Week 5 in the ACC: What to watch for

College football's top regular-season game could come on Saturday, when Lamar Jackson leads Louisville's powerful offense against Clemson's stifling D.

Brian Kelly on postgame remarks: "I don't know that I was that tough on the roster as much as I was tough on my coaches. I think when you tell your coaches that they're on a job interview for the rest of the season, that seems to be tough, moreso than saying there's a standard of play at a particular position. You guys can interpret it anyway that you want. I don't think I'm too tough on them. … It still falls on me, this team's not playing well. It's my fault. I have to find solutions to it. After a game when you're frustrated with the play, everybody is on notice, I made that pretty clear." Kelly adds that it all starts with him, the head coach.

Matt Fortuna ESPN Staff Writer 

Brian Kelly on defensive changes: "We're going to play with enthusiasm, we're going to play with the passion I said was missing. Made changes accordingly to bring that back. That will begin to show itself. You're going to see a lot more players playing. There's going to be some depth, some camaraderie. We need to get that morale up on defense and we'll do that with a lot more players involved in what we're doing on a day-to-day basis."

ACC quarterbacks had a monster Saturday. Here's how they stacked up compared to the rest of the country...

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Syracuse WR has himself a day against UConn (0:45)

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.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

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.
