The Pittsburgh Panthers pulled off one of the best wins of the college football season last weekend, upsetting UCF, 35-34. This was the Knights' first regular season loss in more than two seasons. UCF last lost in 2016.

Fast forward to this weekend...and it's not good.

Pittsburgh is hosting the Delaware Blue Hens, an FCS program, this afternoon.

And Pitt is losing.

This would of course be a disastrous loss for a Pitt program that finally had some good momentum early in the season following the upset win over UCF.

Pitt is trailing UCF, 14-10, late in the third quarter.
