A six-run outburst in the bottom of the fifth inning lifted the University of Pittsburgh baseball team (17-22, 9-12 ACC) past No. 20 Clemson (24-15, 12-8 ACC), 13-4, Sunday afternoon at Charles L. Cost Field at the Petersen Sports Complex in Pittsburgh, Pa.

Former Pitt QB Tom Savage has been quite busy leading up to this year's NFL Draft, which takes place May 8-10. Below is recent coverage featuring the former Panther and some extra goodies from our Pitt Live Wire crew.

4. Speaking of surprise players ... The stunner this draft season is a quarterback who threw 83 passes as a Rutgers sophomore in 2010, then didn't play college football in 2011 or 2012 as he transferred from Rutgers to Arizona to Pitt. "The hottest guy in the draft," Brandt of Tom Savage. How hot is he? Late last week Savage's agent, Neil Schwartz, had to tell two teams who wanted to set up a visit or meeting with the quarterback that he didn't have any time left to do so. "There are literally no days left on his calendar for him to go see any other teams," Schwartz said Saturday. The deadline for teams to host players or work them out is April 27, and by then Savage is scheduled to have either worked out for or had visits with 24 or 25 teams. That's an amazing number of workouts and/or meetings ... and when I say meetings with teams, I mean time with either the GM, coach, offensive coordinator or two or three of those. Savage is popular because he's got an above-average NFL arm right now--some are calling it the best in the draft--and showed well over the last half of last season with a bad offensive line at Pitt. He spent Friday with the Oakland staff, and that's a place he'd fit in well. Amazing to think a player so itinerant and with so little college success could be leap-frogging A.J. McCarron, Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger. But there's a good chance Savage will. Todd McShay had Houston taking Savage with the 33rd overall pick. Now there'd be a way to kick off the second day of the draft in style, with a stunner like that.
