  Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi watched the Panthers put together a nearly flawless practice last Tuesday, one so close to perfect that Narduzzi admitted he practically had to invent something to complain about. That won't be an issue going forward. While Narduzzi remains high on his team, No. 25 Pitt still has plenty to work on following a sloppy 21-10 win over Syracuse on Saturday. A week removed from a romp against overmatched Austin Peay in the opener, the Panthers (2-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) looked very much like a work in progress against the Orange (0-2, 0-2). Seven penalties, three missed field goals and two turnovers allowed Syracuse to hang around well into the second half before Pitt finally pulled away behind a dominant defensive performance. "It was a lot uglier than I'd like it to be," Narduzzi said. "Disappointed more with just the penalties that we had, just some stuff that you don't expect to have at all."

Stuff Narduzzi told the Panthers "championship teams don't do." Still, it's a lesson Pitt learned in a victory. It certainly beats the alternative. "It was definitely a sloppy game," said Kenny Pickett, who threw for two touchdowns and ran for another score. "Didn't play the kind of football we need to play to go where we want to go. It's almost good that it happened, we persevered." Having one of the best defensive front sevens in the country certainly helps. Pitt limited Syracuse to 171 total yards, 69 of them coming on backup quarterback Rex Culpepper's second-quarter touchdown strike to a streaking Taj Harris. Otherwise, Syracuse mustered very little in the face of an unrelenting pass rush. - AP College Football

  Kenny Pickett threw a touchdown pass and ran for another as Pittsburgh scored on each of its first six possessions in its season opener, and raced to a 55-0 victory over Austin Peay at Heinz Field on Saturday. Pickett and offensive coordinator Mark Whipple spread the love around as Pickett threw to seven receivers and six players scored touchdowns during the Panthers' offensive explosion. A Paris Ford interception set up Pitt's first score, a 1-yard Daniel Carter plunge.

Pickett connected with Shocky Jaques-Louis on a 68-yard strike before scrambling into the end zone from six yards out to score on Pitt's second drive. He then connected with wide-open Maryland transfer DJ Turner for a 51-yard score. After that, Whipple turned over the offense to the running game, with Vincent Davis scoring on a one-yard rush, Israel Abanikanda scampering to pay dirt on a 10-yard draw, and Todd Sibley, Jr. plunging in from one yard out on Pitt's three second-quarter possessions. Pickett finished 14 of 20 for 277 yards. Freshman Jordan Addison was his most frequent target, hauling in seven catches for 35 yards. The Pitt defense pitched its first shutout since 2014, holding the Governors to 146 yards of total offense and 10 yards rushing. - Pittsburgh/AP College Football

  Mark Richt has watched Kenny Pickett's career at Pitt with special interest. After all, he was there when it started. And the memory is one he'd prefer to forget. Richt was the coach at Miami in 2017, undefeated and ranked second in the nation. Pickett was a first-year freshman, with zero starts. "We go to Pitt," said Richt, now an analyst on the ACC Network after 18 seasons as the head coach at Georgia and Miami. "Pitt's like 4-7 or something at the moment. We go in there and get our butts beat (24-14) and he plays his tail off. "Just a gutsy performance, throwing and running the football (253 total yards and three touchdowns) and taking some shots and getting up and showing his teammates his physical and mental toughness.

"I like Pickett. I don't like what he did that day, but I do think he's a very good player. I think he's very tough-minded." Richt said Pickett and Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi are a perfect match. "Coach Narduzzi is a tough coach, period," Richt said. "Defensive-minded guy, hard-nosed guy. He doesn't pull any punches. I think Kenny Pickett is the right quarterback for him. Some guys aren't able to handle that type of coaching." - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

  Kenny Pickett threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Taysir Mack with 47 seconds left and Pittsburgh held on to beat Eastern Michigan 34-30 in the Quick Lane Bowl on Thursday night. After taking its first lead of the game, Pittsburgh (8-5) then forced Eastern Michigan (6-7) to turn it over on downs from its 40. That sealed Pitt's first bowl victory in five appearances under coach Pat Narduzzi. The Eagles came up just short in a closely contested game just as they did in three previous bowls under coach Chris Creighton. Eastern Michigan quarterback Mike Glass was ejected with 10 seconds left after throwing punches at two players. Eagles cornerback Kevin McGill was ejected earlier for unsportsmanlike conduct. Glass was 28 of 50 for 311 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. The senior also ran for 83 yards and a score. Pickett completed 27 of 39 passes for 361 yards and three scores, including a school-record, 96-yard TD pass to Maurice Ffrench. Ffrench finished with 12 catches for 165 yards, most of which came on the tying score in the second quarter. - AP College Football

  Kenny Pickett threw for 359 yards and a touchdown and ran for a pair of scores - including a 3-yard burst on the opening possession of overtime - as Pittsburgh held off North Carolina 34-27 on Thursday night to pick up its first win over the Tar Heels since joining the Atlantic Coast Conference in 2013. The Panthers (7-3, 4-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) kept their hopes of a second straight Coastal Division title alive when Pickett darted into the end zone to start overtime and the defense followed by forcing North Carolina quarterback Sam Howell to throw incomplete on fourth-and-16.

Pickett completed 25 of 41 passes and ran 12 times for 53 yards as Pitt ended a six-game losing streak to the Tar Heels (4-6, 3-4). Sophomore wide receiver Shocky Jacques-Louis caught three passes for 96 yards and a touchdown. Howell finished 27 of 43 for 322 yards with three touchdowns and an interception for North Carolina as the Tar Heels rallied twice in the fourth quarter to force overtime. Antonio Williams ran for 107 yards and Dazz Newsome caught 11 passes for 170 and a touchdown. - AP College Football

  Kenny Pickett threw for 232 yards and two touchdowns, one of them coming on a trick play to put Pittsburgh ahead for good, and the Panthers held off Syracuse 27-20 on Friday night for their fourth straight win. Pittsburgh (5-2, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) had won its previous three, by a combined seven points, and two of those victories came in the final minute. This one was different until the end, with the Panthers gaining a 24-6 halftime lead and keeping the Orange at bay despite a tense final 2 minutes.

Clayton Welch hit Aaron Hackett for a 7-yard touchdown with 2:44 left to move the Orange within striking distance, and the Panthers averted a meltdown after Vincent Davis lost a fumble but was ruled down with under 2 minutes left deep in his own territory. Syracuse (3-4, 0-3), which had lost only once in their previous nine games in the Carrier Dome, is the only team in the ACC's Atlantic Division without a conference win. Pitt, which has won 15 of the past 18 games in the series, converted six of 10 third downs in the first half, the defense registered six sacks, and that trick play sent the Panthers on the way to victory. The Panthers entered the game ranked second in the nation in sacks with an average of 4.50 per game (27) and finished with nine, the most in a game since 2001. - Pittsburgh/AP College Football
