Big man, big play

The Standard Journal - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL -

Peter­man fin­ished 14 of 20 for 192 yards and the long score to Ornd­off. The Pan­thers spread the ball around while run­ning for 215 yards, in­clud­ing a 24-yard run by 300-pound Pitt line­man Brian O'Neill on a de­signed throw­back lat­eral.

Pitt of­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor Matt Canada in­stalled the play this week specif­i­cally for O'Neill, a for­mer tight end. He caught the ball and was sur­rounded by team­mates while be­ing es­corted to the end zone.

"( Canada) told me don't do any­thing stupid when you score a touchdown be­cause you're go­ing to score a touchdown," O'Neill said.
