Sunseri has completed 7-of-11 passes for 116 yards with the touchdown and a pick that hurt a late Pitt drive in the second half. He also added a 23-yard run late in the second quarter, prior to throwing that first interception.

Kevin Harper added a 37-yard field goal, after missing field goal attempts in both of his first two games. Iowa's Mike Meyer was a perfect 7-of-7 in field goals, before missing a 40-yard attempt right before halftime.

Both teams are having problems with turnovers and penalties. Pitt has lost ball twice to Iowa--on Sunseri's interception and on a fumble, while the Hawkeyes have just one turnover. The Hawkeyes lead in penalties, with six. Pitt is being prevented from building up a big lead thanks to the turnovers. Iowa's interception came at the Pitt 2. On the opposite side, penalties have slowed Iowa offensive drives down--a big reason for why they've had to settle for field goals.
