Pitt starts fast, runs away from Virginia to third ACC win

PITTSBURGH — It wasn’t long before the Pitt Panthers defeated the Virginia Cavaliers for their third ACC win of the season and secured Bowl eligibility for the fifth straight season. After two pick-sixes and a strong day throwing the ball for Kedon Slovis, Pitt beat Virginia 37-7 and retired to .500 in conference play.

The Panthers couldn’t have started better. On the first play of the game, MJ Devonshire jumped to an out route and intercepted Virginia quarterback Brennan Armstrong. He returned it untouched, 29 yards to give Pitt a 7-0 lead. Armstrong and company immediately came out and threw another pick-six. This time it was Marquis Williams who weaved 39 yards through the Cavalier defense for a touchdown.
