That would prove to be a hard task as Rutgers and their high powered offense, with some help of some costly TO's by Pitt, would come back to reclaim the lead in the 3rd. This would be short lived as Pitt would answer immediately back with Strickland rumbling 83yds off of a delayed hand-off. I must say that the Rutgers D looked like a D-II school on this play as almost their entire D line and a LB were pancaked allowing room for Strickland to run for the endzone. All was not done however, Rutger made Pitt and their Noodle armed QB sweat as they went back and fourth through out the 4th until Pitt captured the lead for the final time with a magical touch pass to Wood in the back of the endzone, threading it through 3 Rutgers defenders. But wait there is more.....! Rutgers the ensuing drive would ready themselves for the game tying drive. This however would be short lived as Wilson would throw a very costly INT to the safety covering the slot. The game ultimately came down to an 3rd and inches. With Rutgers having no time-outs left, Pitt would barely get it over the line with a FB draw, allowing them to get the 1st and run the clock out.
