One of the problem with throwing a bunch of short horizontal passes is that, eventually, those routes are going to be jumped by defensive backs.
That’s what happened on a splendid interception by Pitt cornerback Aaron Berry, who dived in front of Harry Carter on a sideline pass and came down with the interception.
That gave Pitt the ball at the 27-yard line, and the Panthers, who haven’t done anything on offense, shook things up a bit.
Quarterback Pat Bostick hit halfback Darrell Strong and strong found running back LeSean McCoy wide open on the other side of the field for a touchdown.
Why isn’t Strong playing quarterback?
Pitt now trails 14-7 with 2:25 left in the first half. Still a ballgame. Even if it shouldn’t be.
