Chad Voytik threw for 108 yards on 5-8 passing. He scored on a fourth quarter touchdown run to give Pitt a 27-20 lead, capping a 98-yard drive. He had to guide the team to another go-ahead score, the 39-yard field goal from Chris Blewitt, that made the difference.

Conner set a new Pitt bowl game record, rushing for 229 yards and a touchdown. Boyd set a new receiving bowl game record for Pitt, finishing with 173 yards on eight catches. Donald wraps up his Pitt career with 59 tackles (43 solo), 28.5 tackles for losses and 11 sacks.
