'Canes Lead Pitt 10-0. (This Is Stupid.)

We were really looking forward to this game, and in fact continued to be excited right up until the end of the 'Canes last scoring drive, which consisted of approximately eighteen flagged plays (on both sides) in the red zone followed by an easy lob of a Matt Bosher field goal.

On the bright side, the question of zombies has been answered: Miami's are fast but ineffective. Pitt's are slow, and also ineffective.

With 8:28 remaining in the first half, the 'Canes have a 10-0 lead.

Miami Vs. Pitt: That Settled Down In A Hurry

The 'Canes mauled TIno Sunseri in the backfield on the Panthers' first play from scrimmage following Miami's touchdown, which really set the tone for the rest of the first quarter. Pitt went three-and-out, and on the ensuing possession Jacory Harris was intercepted on an endzone bomb. This was followed, naturally, by three more insignificant plays and a punt from the Panthers.

Miami's mistakes weren't really mattering, until they came to one that Pitt didn't need to capitalize on to hurt them: Travis Benjamin ran a punt back for a touchdown that was called back for TWO blocks in the back. For the moment, these two squads seem to have settled into an ineptitude rut. At the end of the first quarter, Miami leads 7-0.

'Canes Off To Fast Start, Lead Pitt 7-0

There's some rapid football underway in Pittsburgh, as Jacory Harris launches a 39-yard pass on the 'Canes' opening drive down the left side to Travis Benjamin, who comes down with it in the red zone. A short time later, Dave Wannstedt can be seen on the sidelines screaming, "PAAAAAASS!" Fortunately, his Panthers don't appear to be listening, and Miami RB Damien Berry is hit for no gain. Seantrel Henderson puts in a brief appearance on the line, and Berry carries once again to score on a 1-yard run. 10 plays, 80 yards, and after just over three minutes, Miami leads, 7-0.
