The refs would like us to stay a little longer today it looks like. We are having trouble getting this kickoff in the air.
The seven-play, 62-yard drive for Pitt was capped off by a Tino Sunseri TD pass to Mike Shanahan.
Touchdown, Pittsburgh. Ole Miss—38, Pittsburgh—17. 2:23—Fourth quarter.
Sunseri and the Pittsburgh offense picking up some garbage stats here with under four minutes to play. Too little, too late for the Panthers.
The 48-yard FG by Ole Miss is no good. Ole Miss—38, Pitt—10. 4:34—fourth quarter.
Pittsburgh turns the ball over on downs yet again and Ole Miss will probably bring in the backups now.
Ole Miss is still hitting hard here late in the game. The Rebels are having fun out there.
With that TD by Ole Miss, the Rebels set the BBVA Compass Bowl scoring record with 38. And counting.

Pitt turns it over on downs and Ole Miss will take over. That feels like the ball game. Pitt fans tend to agree, it looks like.
Pitt isn't playing with a lot of urgency. Down 21, it might want to start acting like it wants to win.
Still 11 minutes left in the BBVA Compass Bowl. Can Pitt make a game out of this in the final minutes?
59,135 is announced attendance. That is a BBVA Compass Bowl record.
Ole Miss is getting pressure on Sunseri by just bringing the four defensive lineman. Sunseri having to rush a little.
