PITTSBURGH — “It’s heartbreaking. It’s terrible. It’s embarrassing, too.”
Those words came from Pitt center Jimmy Morrissey after the Panthers had two opportunities late to salt away victory against Miami at Heinz Field on Saturday.
But the Panthers were stuffed on three runs from the 7-yard line and had to settle for a field goal, and went three-and-out on the following drive after a defensive stop, giving Miami one last chance to beat Pitt’s defense, and the Hurricanes cashed in for a 16-12 upset victory.
