With about 600 yards of total offense, to say that Pitt's wide receivers had a big day would be a bit of an understatement. In particular, starters Devin Street and Tyler Boyd had two more games to remember.
Street had six catches for 166 yards and a couple of touchdowns. Boyd, meanwhile, had seven grabs for 147 yards and three scores.
Just as important as the big yardage totals and the five touchdowns, though, were the big plays. Street had a 67-yard catch while Boyd added a 69-yard one ... and both were touchdowns. There were also several catches of more than 20 yards, including a 30-yarder by Street and a 27-yarder by Boyd.
Those two will get the headlines, as they should, but one guy that had a big day was Kevin Weatherspoon. We'll have more on him later, but he had four huge catches, including the one that really sealed things for Pitt - a big catch as he was going out of bounds on third down to keep the team's final drive alive.
And of course, with all of the receiving yards, quarterback Tom Savage had an absolutely huge day with six touchdowns and no picks, throwing for just over 400 yards. More on him later, too.
