Pitt-Oklahoma State Gameday

It’s game day for the Pitt Panthers as they look to improve their record to 3-0 to start the 2016 season. Last season, Pat Narduzzi’s team had a chance to go 3-0 but lost a tough, last second game to Iowa. Can they do it this year?

I’ll be updating this throughout the entire day, including the game, so check back and leave comments during the game. I’ll be doing this from Cupka’s (South Side) as we host our first “Pitt Gameday Watch Party.” If you’re able to, we’d love for you to stop down to watch with us.

PREGAME READING:


FINAL UPDATE:

That’s a wrap. Peterman is picked off and the Panthers lose 45-38 in a heartbreaker. They’ll travel to Chapel Hill to play the Tar Heels next week.

80+ yard bomb. Maddox falls over. OK State with the ball at the 1. Rudolph now with 540 yards through the air.

UPDATE (9:02)-

Pitt’s drive stalls at midfield. The punt flips field position. OK State takes over at their own 10 yard line.

UPDATE (8:57 PM)-

The shootout has turned into a slug fest. Neither Pitt nor Oklahoma State can do anything on offense as both defenses have stepped up after the long delay.

UPDATE (8:48 PM)-

Pitt can’t do anything on offense. Will punt it away.

UPDATE (8:44 PM)-

Pitt runs into the kicker, 5 yard penalty. OK State re-punts. Pitt takes over at the 21 yard line.

Still in a rain delay. But a resumption of play is on the horizon.

UPDATE (7:18 PM)-

IN-GAME UPDATES:

UPDATE (6:46 PM)-

We’ve got a lightning delay here at Stillwater. Minimum 30 minutes. They’re playing AC/DC’s Thunderstruck on the PA.

UPDATE (6:34 PM)-

No one has scored in like 10 minutes, not sure how to process that.

UPDATE (6:34 PM)-

Its the end of three and OK St. is looking at a long 4th down. Still a tie ballgame, 38-38.

UPDATE (6:21 PM)-

Quadree Henderson takes it all the way on a jet sweep, 38-38.

UPDATE (6:07 PM)-

The Panthers have no answer for Rudolph and Washington, the duo takes the Cowboys right down the field before Rennie punches it in for his third score of the game. OK State takes the lead right back.

UPDATE (5:59 PM)-

Panthers get to Rudolph again, this time Galambos picks up the fumble in the end zone for the score. We’ve got ourselves a tie game, 31-31.

UPDATE (5:55 PM)-

Panthers can’t do much and are forced to punt. Let’s see what kind of halftime adjustments Pitt has made on defense.

The second half begins. Pitt with the ball.

UPDATE (5:25 PM)-

They didn’t tie the game.

We’re going to half time with the score 31-24, Oklahoma State on top.

UPDATE (5:21 PM)-

This game is getting wild. OK State fumbles again, but the call is overturned. OK State forced to punt. George Aston blocks it. Pitt takes over with great field position and a chance to tie (!) the game.

UPDATE (5:13 PM)-

Peterman hits Jester Weah in stride. Weah stiff-arms a defender and takes it to the house. Back to a one score game, 31-24 OK State.

UPDATE (5:12 PM)-

Rudolph inexplicably fumbles the ball. Pitt recovers.

UPDATE (5:09 PM)-

Pitt forced to punt. OK St. 415 yards of offense in less than 10 minutes of possession.

UPDATE (5:02 PM)-

Oklahoma State scoring faster than I can type. Rennie Childs with a 67-yard run on 3rd down. Touchdown OK St. 34-17 Cowboys. Might have been a hold. Nothing called.

UPDATE (4:56 PM)-

Pitt marches down the field, the key play being a 55 yard pass to James Conner. Conner then takes it in from the 1 on 4th down for his first TD of the day. Refs review the TD for about an hour, but the call stands. 24-17 OK State.

UPDATE (4:40 PM)-

Childs busts in for the TD, but Rudolph to Washington doing most of the damage. 24-10 OK St.

Rudolph has 303 yards passing. Washington 5 rec for 214 yards and a TD.

Pitt probably needs to make some halftime adjustments to their passing defense.

UPDATE (4:28 PM)-

Mason Rudolph unstoppable as the Cowboys march 99-yards for the TD. 17-10 OK State.

UPDATE (4:20 PM)-

End of one from Stillwater, 10-10. Seems like it should be a lot more.

UPDATE (4:17 PM)-

Our first punt of the game is a good one. OK State pinned at their 1.

UPDATE (4:11 PM)-

Pitt forces another long field goal try from OK State, this time Grogan makes it. All tied up 10-10.

UPDATE (4:05 PM)-

Pitt refuses to throw the ball down field on third down. But Blewitt nails a 48 yard FG, his first of the year. Pitt up 10-3. Coach Narduzzi showing faith in his kicker.

UPDATE (3:55 PM)-

No one has scored in 10 minutes. OK State misses a 49 yard FG. Pitt takes over with good field position.

UPDATE (3:45 PM)-

Pitt answers right back with a quick drive of their own. Henderson on the jet sweep takes it in. 7-7 ballgame.
