Pitt Recruits Struggle Until Late In Big 33 Game

Pitt had several recruits playing in the Big 33 game over the weekend that pits Pennsylvania vs. Ohio.

Anthony Gonzalez and Andrew Carswell of PA played pitch and catch on a 65-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.  Fellow Pitt recruit, QB Mark Myers then led Ohio down the field on a 75-yard drive (at least 70 yards were through the air) in only 23 seconds, then converted a two-point conversion giving Ohio an 18-15 win.

Neither QB was particularly effective - Myers was 8-16 for 127 yards and two interceptions while Gonzalez was 6-19 for 146 yards and one TD / two interceptions.

Over the years, more than 100 NFL players have participated in the Big 33 game.
