2018 Stanford 14 Pitt 13 Sun Bowl Shawn Watson

The Pitt offense is inept. The main reason – the offensive coordinator can’t create mismatches and the passing game is almost non existent.

Pitt’s sophomore QB Kenny Pickett finished the day with 11 for 29 for 136 yards and 0 TDs and INTs.

After Pitt got out to an early 3-0 lead, Stanford marched down the field two series later and scored on a 1 yard TD run by Cardinal tailback Cameron Scarlett. It capped a 7 play 64 yard drive. Stanford 7 Pitt 3
