Maine Vs. Pitt Score: Panthers Beat Black Bears By A Touchdown

The Pitt Panthers beat Maine by a score of 35-29 Saturday, and while the game wasn’t quite as close as the score indicated (Maine scored two touchdowns in the final three-and-a-half minutes of the game), the Panthers surely have to be alarmed at their performance against a lower-quality opponent.

Maine quarterback Warren Smith passed for 334 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. A lot of that production came in the second half with Pitt ahead, but still. Derek Buttles had 148 yards receiving for Maine. Pitt’s Tino Sunseri, on the other hand, was frustrating, going 21-for-35 for 224 yards and two interceptions.

Ray Graham rushed for 121 yards and had three touchdowns for the Panthers, and the Panthers did keep the Maine running game from being a factor, as the Black Bears had just 37 yards on the ground.
