Pittsburgh (AP) - Antwuan Reed returned a fumble 20 yards for a touchdown with less than 3 minutes remaining to lift Pittsburgh to a 33-20 win over Syracuse on Saturday.
The Panthers (6-6, 4-3 Big East) became bowl eligible for the fourth straight year with the victory. Tino Sunseri threw for 259 yards and a score and Kevin Harper drilled four field goals while the Pitt defense forced the reeling Orange (5-7, 1-6) into six turnovers.
Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib threw his 22nd touchdown pass of the season to tie a school record but also tossed two interceptions and fumbled twice as the Orange dropped their fifth straight.
