As the first quarter draws to a close, the Cincinnati Bearcats lead the Pitt Panthers by a score of 6-3. Things started off badly for Pitt, as Cincinnati’s Isaiah Pead scampered down the right sideline on the second play from scrimmage, juking a Pitt defender in the process, en route to a 53-yard gain. That set up a 27-yard field goal by Tony Miliano on 4th and 1.
Pitt, too, managed a field goal (a 52-yarder by Kevin Harper) on its opening drive that was led by a 19-yard run from Devin Street.
Ralph Abernathy returned the ensuing kickoff 35 yards, however, and Cincinnati quarterback Zach Collaros completed a 27-yard pass to Anthony McClung, leading to another field goal by Miliano.
The two teams then traded punts as the quarter ended. Pitt has the ball to begin the second quarter.
