Pitt (3-4, 0-3 Big East) never trailed, jumping out to a 13-0 second quarter lead before Buffalo (1-6, 0-3 MAC) got on the board with a pair of field goals at the end of the first half.
Pitt scored the only touchdown of the second half on Ray Graham's seven-yard run with 6:29 left in the third quarter. The run capped off a nine-play, 58-yard drive.
Buffalo quarterback Alex Zordich did finish with 244 all-purpose yards (165 passing and 79 rushing), but he was never able to guide the Bulls to the end zone.
Box Score Hero: Not much to choose from here, but Graham had a solid day with 74 yards and a score on 20 carries.
Rankings Ramifications: There were no rankings ramifications for this game.
But Did They Cover?: Pitt was a 9 1/2-point favorite, so they covered.
