Pitt topples No. 10 Bulls

No. 15 Utah defeats OSU as time expires

LeSean McCoy ran for two touchdowns and Bill Stull threw for another as Pittsburgh upset No. 10 South Florida 26-21 on Thursday night in Tampa, Fla.

The Panthers (4-1, 2-0 Big East) have beaten the last three nationally ranked teams they have faced, including No. 23 Cincinnati and No. 2 West Virginia in 2007. They have won two of the last three games with South Florida (5-1, 0-1) in Tampa.

Stull finished 16 for 27 for 228 yards.

Quarterback Matt Grothe accounted for most of South Florida’s offense, but the Bulls didn’t score any points on offense in the first half. Grothe was 11 of 20 for 129 yards and rushed 11 times for 25 yards, including a 1-yard keeper for a TD in the third.

(15) Utah 31, Oregon State 28: Louie Sakoda kicked a 37-yard field goal as time expired to cap an 11-point rally over the final 89 seconds and give the Utes (6-0) a win over the Beavers (2-3) at Salt Lake City.

The Utes tied the game at 28 on a 25-yard touchdown pass and two-point conversion by Brian Johnson with 1:29 remaining. Utah’s defense held the Beavers on a three-and-out and the Utes got the ball back 23 seconds later to set up the final drive and Sakoda’s game-winner.

Oregon State was coming in off its upset of then-No. 1 Southern California on Sept. 25.
