SCORING RECAP: Pitt 35, UConn 20

Tino Sunseri may have been close to losing the starting quarterback job at Pitt two weeks ago but he threw for a career-high 419 yards Wednesday night as the Panthers defeated UConn 35-20 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

Pitt (4-4, 2-1 Big East) didn't even need running back Ray Graham, who injured his right knee in the first quarter and may miss the remainder of the season. UConn fell to 3-5 overall and 1-2 in the Big East. The Huskies fell to seventh place in the conference standings.
