Tim Frazier scored 27 points but Penn State had no answer for Talib Zanna or Lamar Patterson down the stretch and Pitt rode their inside game to a 78-69 win over Penn State at the Petersen Events Center in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

For the first time since 2006, the Panthers oldest rival came to Oakland.

Following old tradition, Pitt, once again took down that foe.
