Pitt Surprises No. 13 Virginia Tech 35-17

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pittsburgh's Ray Graham ran for 94 yards and two scores and added an 18-yard touchdown reception to lead the Panthers to a 35-17 upset of No. 13 Virginia Tech on Saturday.

Tino Sunseri passed for 283 yards and three touchdowns and freshman running back Rushel Shell added 157 yards as Pitt (1-2) gave coach Paul Chryst his first career victory in emphatic fashion.

The Panthers never trailed, forced four turnovers and took advantage of uncharacteristically sloppy play by the Hokies.

Virginia Tech (2-1) had won 13 straight true road games, the longest active streak in the country, but let Pitt race to a quick three-touchdown lead and never really threatened. Logan Thomas completed just 14 of 31 passes for 265 yards and one touchdown against three interceptions.
