Pitt vs. UConn: Huskies crushing Panthers, 24-0 at halftime

After a near win at undefeated No. 3 Notre Dame last week, Pitt's game tonight against UConn seemed easy by comparison.

Yeah, so much for that.

The Panthers are being routed by the Huskies, 24-0 at halftime and are putting out one of their worst efforts of the season. It's difficult to argue which has been worse - the offense or the defense. Pitt's offense is being shut out and the lone bright spot has been tight end Drew Carswell with four catches for 72 yards. Tino Sunseri is only 8-18 for 107 yards and the running game has been nonexistent. Ray Graham and Rushel Shell have combined so far for a meager 24 yards on nine carries.

Things haven't been much better on defense, either. UConn jumped out to a 10-0 lead on a pair of nice drives and after an 80-yard punt return for a touchdown by Nick Williams, the Huskies went on to score a third touchdown. UConn has been one of the worst offenses in the Big East, so the result so far is disappointing to say the least.
