    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!"

    Pitt Beats Rutgers, Loses Bostick

    -New Brunswick

    The Pitt Panthers lost their star Senior Quarterback for 12 weeks to a dislocated elbow, but still ended up pulling away from the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, winning 35-28. The Panthers made some huge plays on defense to hold off a feisty Rutgers team that was hungry for the upset.
    Despite a huge day from Rutgers QB Savage and a subpar day from Pitt RB "Neon" Dion Lewis (thanks to the tough Rutgers D), the Panthers' D held serve, playing a "bend but don't break style" that ended up giving the team a win, but the coach a heart attack.

    Coach OCIU is currently hospitalized for said heart attack, but had this to say: "Credit Rutgers for a great game today, but I'm so proud of my boys for fighting on after Bostick went down. Glad to see that we're developing a real, old school rivalry with those Scarlet Knights, and best of luck to them the rest of the season."

    The 14th-ranked Pitt Panthers go to 5-0 on the season.
