Defensive tackle Aaron Donald was absolutely dominant, blocking an extra point and adding a sack and three tackles for loss to lead Pitt to a 17-16 win over Syracuse in the Carrier Dome, locking up a bowl berth for the Panthers.

The Panthers (6-5) came up with a late defensive stop to seal the victory, as Syracuse’s final pass fell incomplete on 4th down from the Pitt 36.

Tom Savage passed for 313 yards and two touchdowns as Pitt clawed back from a 27-3 second half deficit to tie the game at 27, but a Ryan Switzer 61-yard punt return for a touchdown—his second of the game—lifted North Carolina to a 34-27 win over the Panthers at Heinz Field Saturday afternoon.

Despite a dominant effort from defensive tackle Aaron Donald, Pitt managed just 228 yards of offense and lost for the third time in four games, falling 21-10 to Georgia Tech in Atlanta on Saturday night.
