Louisville vs. Pittsburgh 2012: Panthers fans react to 45-35 loss

After a big third quarter out of the Louisville Cardinals, the Pittsburgh Panthers fell 45-35 to the visiting Big East foes yesterday at Heinz Field. Fans at SB Nation's Pittsburgh Panthers community, Cardiac Hill, were complacent with Louisville simply being the better team on the afternoon.

In the end, the Panthers were just beaten by a better team. Pitt couldn't hang with Louisville for a full 60 minutes...

Panthers fans are ready to concede that this is a rebuilding year for the Pitt program, adding that "this season is lost in terms of having a good year," with "good" in this sense meaning bowl eligibility. But for them to have played so well against a good Louisville team in a losing effort remains altogether unsatisfying.

It was one of those games where we come away scratching our heads. Pitt played really well in the first half and were keeping it close with Louisville and seemingly had the momentum. So to see them simply fall apart in the third quarter was surprising and concerning.

Pitt will travel to Buffalo to play the Bulls at 3:30 p.m. Eastern next week.
