Pitt’s first quarter against Miami could not have gone much better, and Jared Wayne was a major reason for the early 14-0 lead.
Wayne caught a quick pass from Kedon Slovis right around midfield, shook tacklers and raced 66 yards to the end zone to score Pitt’s second touchdown of the first quarter — racking up about 50 yards after the catch.
It was Pitt’s longest passing play of the season, breaking his own 64-yard gain against West Virginia earlier this season.
