    The Pitt Panthers come into East Lansing expecting to breeze through Michigan State and Coach Zetroc. Little did they know, the Spartans were ready to play.

    This game was a defensive victory for the Coach Z. Forcing 5 turnovers bye taking advantage of Pitt's young QB Spencer Sanders for 4 picks.

    1st Quarter was fairly quiet with both teams moving the ball. State's RB Glenn Carrington had the only score with a 3yr TD run. MSU 7-0

    2nd Quarter both teams started moving the ball. Pitt was able to get a good drive going, but were stumped to force a 32yrd FG by K Sean Lewis. MSU 7-3 The Panthers were able to hold State and force a punt. The next possesion would prove costly for Pitt when Spencer, throwing an out route, gets picked by the Spartan's CB Anthony Gaither. Gaither takes it to the house for a nice 63yrd TD. MSU 14-3 Michigan State gets another turnover, but stumbles on the drive with just a few minutes left in the half. Coach Rynoaid gets the ball back within a minute and is able to get in range for a half ending FG. MSU 14 PITT 6 HALF

    3rd quarter was back and forth. State was able to mount a good drive by changing up the gameplan a bit. A couple of key 3rd downs were topped of with a beautiful 64yrd TD catch by MSU WR David Thompson. "It looked like their safety had a bead on that ball and then David just snagged that baby and took it tha house!" -Coach Z MSU 21-6

    4th quarter got a little interesting. The Spartans looked to take the game over after getting another FG to make it 24-6 MSU. Pitt takes the ball and easily gets down the field for a score when QB Spencer sprints for a 20yrd TD. MSU 24 PITT 12 The Panthers go for 2 to make a ten point game, but fail. MSU adds another FG and seals a 1st week victory.

    MSU 27 PITT 12 FINAL


    GG Ryno.
