Youngstown State Vs. Pittsburgh Score Update: Panthers Trail Penguins At Half, 14-10

The Pittsburgh Panthers find themselves in a surprising hole in their season opener, trailing Youngstown State 14-10 at halftime at Heinz Field.

The Penguins jumped on the Panthers early, driving 79 yards in 10 plays early in the first quarter to take a 7-0 lead on a Kurt Hess 27-yard touchdown pass to Andre Stubbs. Hess has been solid in the first half, completing 10 of 17 passes for 127 yards and two touchdowns.

Pittsburgh answered the early Youngstown score with an 11 play, 75-yard drive of their own, scoring on an Isaac Bennett four-yard run with 2:47 left in the first quarter.

Hess and the Penguins came right back however, scoring on another touchdown pass five minutes into the second quarter to stretch the lead to 14-7. A Kevin Harper 33-yard field goal for the Panthers made the score 14-10, which is the margin as the two teams enter the half.
