Syracuse men's soccer head coach Ian McIntyre: "Every game ends in 90 minutes, but to conceive in the final minute is a tough one."

Up to the final minute of the game between the Clemson Tigers and Syracuse Orange, it was equal. The Orange held tempo for most of the first half but were unable to score, and by the second, the No. 4 Tigers (11-1-2, 4-1-1 ACC) crept back in.

SU's defense forces four turnovers, but the offense fails to reach the end zone in a 10-point defeat.

Few people expected Syracuse to handle the pressure of a big-time road game, especially not the team’s first trip to “Death Valley” against the No. 21 Clemson Tigers.

Surrounded by fireworks, balloons and 80,031 screaming Tigers fans, the Orange walked into an electric Memorial Stadium. It was the largest crowd to witness a Syracuse football game since 2009, when the Orange played at Penn State (106,387).

But after a hard-fought 16-6 loss to the Tigers, the mood in the Orange locker room was extremely somber.

A vaunted SU defense helps shut down the Tigers.

By Matthew Alexander

On a humid Saturday that saw temperatures reach 80 degrees, Syracuse was able to cool down a hot Clemson squad. 

Coming into the day’s contest, the Tigers (3-4-0, 1-1-0 ACC) had won three straight and were riding high after a 6-0 blowout victory over Gardner-Webb on Wednesday. However, it was the Syracuse (6-1-0, 1-1-0 ACC) defense that stepped up, shutting out Clemson 1-0 and securing its first ACC win of the season.

The Orange received all 65 first-place votes after defeating Duke Saturday and after Arizona lost to California.

After Cal's Justin Cobb's nailed a game-winner jumper with a second left on the clock against then-No. 1 Arizona Saturday, the nation had already crowned it's new No. 1 team: Syracuse. Hours removed from a dramatic overtime victory over Duke, the Orange (21-0, 8-0 ACC) became one of only two undefeated teams in the nation, joining Wichita Sate (23-0).
