TAMPA – Pitt quarterback Bill Stull tossed a 52-yard touchdown pass to freshman receiver Jonathan Baldwin to forge a 7-7 tie in the first quarter of a Big East game against No. 10 South Florida at Raymond James Stadium.

USF’s Quenton Washington blocked a Dave Brytus punt and Charlton Sinclair recovered and scored on a 27-yard return to give the Bulls a 7-0 lead with 8:07 remaining in the first quarter. Washington had earlier drawn a 15-yard personal foul penalty for roughing the kicker on Brytus’ first punt.

On a third-and-8 at the Pitt 47, Stull found Baldwin streaking along the right sideline, several steps ahead of cornerback Tyller Roberts for the touchdown pass that tied the game at 7-7 with 5:54 remaining.

USF quarterback Matt Grothe saw his streak of passes without an incompletion end at 110 when Pitt safety Dom DeCicco picked him off with 5:05 remaining. Grothe later spun out of the grasp of defensive end Greg Romeus and reversed field for a 27-yard run. The Bulls had the ball at Pitt’s 25 when the quarter ended.
