Pitt-Oklahoma State has already dragged on at over three hours and still plenty of time in the fourth quarter. But after nearby lightning strikes, the game is going to be even longer as it was delayed by 30 minutes.
Both teams have played to a 38-38 tie so far and while Pitt has had problems defensively in the passing game, the Panthers have hung in there and given them a shot to win a tough game on the road.
James Conner has 100 rushing yards on the day while Quadree Henderson has added 87 and a pair of touchdowns. Quarterback Nathan Peterman is 8/18 with 188 passing yards to go along with a touchdown. Oklahoma State’s passing game, though, has been the thorn in Pitt’s side. Their quarterback, Mason Rudolph, has 451 passing yards with plenty of game left.
We’ll see in about a half hour how both teams respond to the break.
