First quarter: Pitt 7, USF 7


Pitt and South Florida were tied at 7-7 after the first quarter of their Big East Conference game this afternoon at Heinz Field.

LeSean McCoy turned a screen pass from Pat Bostick into a 45-yard gain, turning the left corner and accelerating past three defenders to the USF 12.

On third-and-3 at the 5, McCoy took a direct snap out of the Wildcat formation for a 4-yard gain. Two plays later, McCoy ran a toss to the right for a 1-yard scoring run to give Pitt a 7-0 lead with 5:23 remaining in the first quarter.

It was his 12th rushing touchdown of the season, one shy of Tony Dorsett’s school record.

USF answered with a fake punt, as linebacker Sam Miller took the snap and sprinted 29 yards to the Pitt 17. Two plays later, Mike Ford scored on a 15-yard run to tie the game at 7-7 with 48 seconds left in the first quarter.
