SACK! Turnover on downs. Tennessee gets a HUGE stop on fourth and three after Narduzzi opted to go for it. Had to have it.
TOUCHDOWN BRU MCCOY! Hooker makes up for that mistake and tosses a lofty touchdown pass to McCoy. Dropped it right in the bucket for six. 17-14, Pittsburgh.

Banks dialing up pressure and gets burned — Slovis finds his tight end who hurdled a defender and ended up going the distance. Tennessee HAS to start getting home with this pressure. 17-7, Pitt.

Pitt rips off a huge touchdown run, right up the gut — wide open spaces. UGLY start here, the polar opposite of last season. 10-0, Pitt.
