Pitt Panthers 2011 Press Releases The Burgh is Back! -Pittsburgh In one for the ages, the home Pitt Panthers upset the #1 Notre Dame Fighting Irish on the strength of a 2 touchdown day by QB Pat Bostick. Bostick managed the offense beautifully, throwing for 2 TDs and more than 200 yards. Dion Lewis was his usual self, running for 88 yards, half of which were yards after contact. Aaron Smith came up with a huge 79 yard Touchdown in the first half when Notre Dame tried to blitz 8, leaving a streaking Smith wide open for the touchdown. The Fourth Quarter was one of the most exciting in the University's recent memory. 28 total points were scored, including 21 points in the last 2 minutes. Pitt's Kevin Collier started the scoring run with a 4 yard TD with 2 minutes to go. Notre Dame struck back with a Crist Touchdown pass with a minute to go, striking fear in the hearts of the Pitt faithful. However, the fear was shortlived as Senior Aundre Wright returned the following kickoff 90 yards for the touchdown. Notre Dame's attempt to send the game to overtime came up short, and Pitt won the day. No one said it better than Aundre Wright after the game: "The Burg is back, baby!"
