The Pittsburgh Panthers got the football first and made the most of their opening drive. Quarterback Tino Sunseri hit on all seven of his passes ad the Panthers marched right down the football field. The offense went on a 12-play, 80-yard drive eating nearly 6 minutes off the clock, capped off by a one-yard touchdown run by running back Isaac Bennett to put Pitt to an early 7-0 lead.
Louisville got the football and began to go on their own drive, pounding the football with Victor Anderson and Daniel Brown, with quarterback Tyler Bridgewater hitting on some sideline throws. Louisville marched across midfield, but Bridgewater was intercepted by Carl Fleming on a long pass down the field.
Pitt wasn't able to capitalize on the turnover, however, with their drive stalling out just after crossing the 50-yard line. Louisville's ensuing drive went no where and the Cardinals punted the football. Pittsburgh will begin the second quarter with a 7-0 lead.
