Pitt answered a Navy scoring drive with one of its own as they were tied at 7-7 in the first quarter tonight at Heinz Field.
Navy (3-2) needed only five plays that covered 77 yards to score on its first possession, starting with a 49-yard pass from Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada to O.J. Washington and finishing with a 4-yard touchdown run by Reggie Campbell for a 7-0 lead with 9:02 left in the first quarter.
Pitt (2-3) answered with a 13-play, 75-yard scoring drive highlighted by LeSean McCoy’s 13-yard run on fourth-and-1 at Pitt’s 46. A 14-yard pass to tight end Nate Byham, who bounced off Navy rover Jesse Iwuji, set up fullback Conredge Collins’ 2-yard touchdown run to tie the game at 7-7 with 3:14 remaining in the first quarter.
The Midshipmen had the ball at Pitt’s 16 when the quarter ended.
