SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Syracuse's Scott Shafer has that all-important initial victory as a coach. He's just not yet certain what it means.

At the very least, Saturday's 54-0 win over Wagner in the Orange's home opener helped dim the disappointment of losses to Penn State and No. 18 Northwestern. And it didn't matter that the Seahawks play at Division I's second level.

Shafer says the challenge for the team was to win ``the way you should win against a lower division opponent.''

Tulane (2-1) visits the Carrier Dome on Saturday. Then, after a bye week, Syracuse (1-2) finally opens play in the Atlantic Coast Conference - at home to No. 3 Clemson (2-0).

Shafer was subdued on his Tuesday conference call in the wake of the death of good friend Rob Edson, who died Saturday at age 45 of an apparent heart attack.
