SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Syracuse has stopped its four-game losing streak. Now coach Scott Shafer has to make sure the Orange don't start another skid.

Not an easy task with the team's first-ever visit to Death Valley looming on Saturday against No. 21 Clemson (5-2, 4-1 ACC) in a key Atlantic Coast Conference matchup.

Syracuse lost 38-20 to then-No. 1 Florida State 10 days ago and hasn't beaten a ranked opponent on the road since a 19-14 victory at No. 20 West Virginia in October 2010.
