Pitt used a 74-yard touchdown pass, a crucial fourth down stop and a field goal as time expired to beat Georgia Tech 37-34 on Saturday at Heinz Field.

The college football gods are a fickle bunch.

Their presence in Pitt’s 37-34 victory over Georgia Tech at Heinz Field Saturday was omnipotent.

Pitt's 527 yards of offense was not enough as Oklahoma State rolled up 540 yards through the air, including an 86-yard pass with 1:31 left to set up the winning touchdown as the Cowboys topped the Panthers 45-38 in Stillwater on Saturday.

In the words of amped-up former Pitt coach Walt Harris: “It’s a rivalry again!”

The return of James Conner after his battle with cancer has the 2016 Pitt Panthers fired up and primed to make a run in the ACC Coastal Division.

The 2016 Panthers must move forward without their all-time leading receiver.

In the days leading up to the 2016 NFL Draft, it was unknown whether University of Pittsburgh tight end JP Holtz would be selected.

Three WPIAL players were drafted into the NFL this past weekend. Former Pitt wide receiver and Clairton standout Tyler Boyd was the first local player off the board when the Cincinnati Bengals made him their second round pick on Friday night.

Scouts love Boyd’s competitiveness, route-running ability and hands, which make up for his lack of elite speed.

There may not be a player with local connections selected in the opening round of this month's NFL Draft, but the region will nonetheless be well-represented once again when the NFL comes calling.

The Steelers opened the preseason as the odd-on favorite in the AFC North, but injuries and suspensions could open the door for a still-talented Bengals team and Ravens squad looking to rebound from a disappointing 2015.

Pittsburgh Penguins’ head coach Mike Sullivan has obviously spoken several very kind words about his championship hockey team. Sullivan has complimented his team’s speed, chemistry, and teamwork. But perhaps more than anything else, Sullivan complimented their toughness.
