The Pittsburgh Panthers were handled by the Youngstown State Penguins, losing by a score of 31-17 on Saturday night at Heinz Field.
Pitt was undone by a Penguins ground game that accrued 210 yards on the ground. Youngstown State dominated time of possession as a result, holding the football for 33:18.
The Panthers were never able to get going, trailing throughout the game. Their other issue was turnovers; they finished with a -2 ratio thanks to a couple of lost fumbles.
On the positive side, Tino Sunseri played a strong game in a losing effort. The senior was solid, throwing for 230 yards and a touchdown on 19-of-30 passing against the FCS Youngstown State Penguins.
Ray Graham was also effective when given the opportunity. On 14 carries, Graham gained 71 yards.
However, the showstopper was the combination of Penguins running backs Jamaine Cook and Andre Stubbs. Cook rushed for 84 yards while Stubbs added 71 on just six attempts, scoring a touchdown in the process.
