No. 13/11 Penn State Defeats Pittsburgh, 17-10

No. 13/11 Penn State Defeats Pittsburgh, 17-10

No. 13/11 Penn State used a 13-play, 88-yard touchdown drive in the third quarter and a late goal line stand in the fourth to secure a 17-10 victory over Pittsburgh in front of a “Stripe Out” crowd of 108,661 Saturday afternoon in Beaver Stadium.

Penn State’s (3-0) third-quarter scoring drive was capped by a 13-yard touchdown run by freshman running back Noah Cain(Baton Rouge, La.), which proved to be the game-deciding score. The Nittany Lion defense then prevented Pittsburgh (1-2) from tying it up late, denying the Panthers despite first-and-goal at the 1-yard line. Linebacker Cam Brown (Burtonsville, Md.) forced Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett to throw the ball away on first and third downs, and safety Garrett Taylor (Richmond, Va.) and linebacker Jesse Luketa (Ottawa, Ontario) stuffed running back A.J. Davis on second down, leading to a failed 19-yard field goal attempt on fourth down with 4:54 remaining.
