The Pitt Panthers took on #16 South Florida last night. When I say “Pitt Panthers,” I really mean, “Ray Graham.” And when I say “took on,” I really mean, “ran over them.” Graham rushed for 226 yards on 26 touches and two touchdowns last night against USF. Graham also had four catches for 42 yards in Pitt’s 44-17 win in the Big East opener. More here. (Editors note: QB Tino Sunseri played an excellent game under center last night as well. His 216 passing yards and 0 turnovers played a huge role in last night's win - TT)
