Ffrench scores in final seconds, Pitt outlasts Duke 54-45

first_imgPittsburgh’s Maurice Ffrench, center, runs away from Albany’s Tyler Carswell (2) and Ryan Lape (56) on his way to returning the opening kickoff of an NCAA football game, Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018, in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic) PITTSBURGH (AP) — In a game that both defenses would probably like to forget, Pitt and Duke combined for 1,254 yard of total offense on Saturday.It was the kind of game where it seemed like the team that had the ball last would win, and that’s just what happened, when Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett connected with Maurice Ffrench on a 25-yard touchdown strike with five seconds remaining to lead Pitt to a 54-45 victory.Pitt (4-4, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) moved to within a half-game of first place in the ACC Coastal division, while Duke (5-3, 1-3) missed an opportunity to secure bowl eligibility and climb into contention within the division.Each team eclipsed 600 yards of total offense. Pitt’s 484 rushing yards were the second-most in program history. Duke did most of its damage in the air, with Jones setting career highs with 396 passing yards and four touchdowns. Deon Jackson set a Duke record with 403 all-purpose yards.“Obviously, a bad day to play defense,” Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi said. “Disappointed in the way our defense played. Been there before”In a game full of offense, Pitt’s defense got an elusive stop late in the fourth quarter, with defensive tackle Amir Watts sacking Daniel Jones on a fourth-and-long to get the Panthers the ball back and set up Pickett’s game-winning strike.“It was a day of explosive plays and they ultimately made more than we did,” Duke head coach David Cutcliffe said. “Hats off to Pitt, they responded. This one is going to be tough to put behind us.”Duke did not punt until the fourth quarter, with an early turnover on downs and a Jones fumble standing as the only two stops for Pitt’s defense until the final frame.Ffrench’s game-winner was his second touchdown. He also scored on a 50-yard catch in the second quarter.Freshman defensive back V’Lique Carter, playing in his first game, made an impact on offense, with scores from 31 and 16 yards out. He finished with 137 yards on seven carries. Regular running back Qadree Ollison had 149 yards and a score on 18 rushes.For Duke, backup quarterback Quentin Harris scored on a pair of short runs and slot receiver T.J. Rahming had a pair of short touchdowns.Pitt added a safety when Duke lateraled the final kickoff out of the end zone.THE TAKEAWAYPitt’s win finished a hectic week in the Coastal that set up a couple of big games over the next two weeks. Pitt, Virginia (4-1) and Virginia Tech (3-1) each have one conference loss and the Panthers will play the Cavaliers and Hokies in their next two games.PICKING HIS GAME UPPitt had leaned on its rushing offense for most of the game, but Pickett game through in crunch time.He started the final drive with a 24-yard screen pass to Darrin Hall and then hit Rafael Araujo-Lopes on a 17-yard pass, Tre Tipton for six yards and then an 11-yard scramble just before the game-winning pass to Ffrench.Pickett finished 8 of 18 for 150 yards and two touchdowns, with three of his eight completions and 72 of his passing yards coming on the final drive.“It was just staying positive with the receivers all game and knowing that we put so much work in and they’ll start connecting,” Pickett said. “That’s really all that was. The off week, we worked really hard on the two-minute drill.”KICKING IN THE RAINWith the game being played in a drizzling rain, the kicking game was likely to be tough sledding for both sides.One of Pitt’s defensive stops came in the first quarter, when Cutcliffe eschewed a field-goal attempt from Pitt’s 24 and went for it on a fourth-and-7. Jones was hurried and his pass went incomplete.Later in the game, Narduzzi trusted kicker Alex Kessman with a pair of long field goals. Kessman hit both, a 54-yarder in the third quarter and a 48-yarder in the fourth quarter that tied the game late. Kessman, a redshirt sophomore, set a Pitt record by hitting his fifth career field goal of 50 yards or more.UP NEXTPitt visits first-place Virginia on Friday night.Duke is at Miami Saturday._______________More AP college football: https://apnews.com/tag/Collegefootball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25last_img read more

Vivian Stringer’s 1,000th career victory, the Hall of Fame coach took a moment to soak it all in.She was surrounded by family, friends, former players and coaches from all three schools where she coached.“Let me tell you something, sometimes people ask how did I accomplish these things?” Stringer said. “This was only done with my family first of all and they mean everything in the world. They lifted me up.”Stringer became the fifth Division I women’s basketball coach to achieve the milestone and sixth woman overall when the Scarlet Knights beat Central Connecticut State 73-44 on Tuesday night.The Hall of Fame coach joined Pat Summitt, Geno Auriemma, Tara VanDerveer and Sylvia Hatchell in the 1,000-victory club. Division II coach Barbara Stevens also has won over 1,000 games. The 70-year-old Stringer is the first African-American coach to reach the milestone.Rutgers head coach C.

Her current team dumped a Gatorade bucket full of the confetti over their coach’s head.Video tributes from all the other living Division I members of the 1,000-win club were played as Stringer sat under balloons that spelled out CVS1K. Stringer also received many online tributes on social media, including one from Hillary Clinton . Rutgers presented her with a banner to celebrate her 1,000th win that will hang in the arena’s rafters. She also received a customized pair of shoes that listed the number of wins she had each of her three schools — Cheyney State, Iowa and Rutgers.Rutgers head coach C.

(AP Photo/Bill Kostroun)Many of her former players were on hand to witness the milestone victory. She’s 1,000-402 in her career. New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy was also sitting courtside for the historic win.South Carolina coach Dawn Staley also made the trip to New Jersey with her staff that included Jolette Law, who was an assistant for Stringer at Rutgers for many years and played for her at Iowa.“I know that coach Law fooled me this morning saying she couldn’t come to the celebration because she had the scout,” Stringer said. “One of the young ladies came from Hawaii. She flew in and is going to fly back. Maybe I’m doing some things right. People genuinely do care. Something my father said a long time ago, don’t give me flowers when I’m gone let me know what you feel now.”Staley’s Gamecocks play on Thursday against Clemson. She said she had no doubt in her mind she should be at Rutgers for this game with all that Stringer has meant to African-American coaches.“It’s legacy,” Staley said. “She’s meant so much to the game and I’m here to celebrate with her.”While Stringer remembers many of the victories over her 48-year coaching career, one that she doesn’t recall is her first one at Cheyney State. In fact, no one can specifically remember who her team beat to get that first victory. Stringer laughs about it now, saying that she had no idea she’d be still coaching nearly five decades later and win 1,000 games.While it took Stringer five tries to get win No. 900 in 2013, her team took care of reaching this milestone on its first try. The Scarlet Knights (3-0) scored 10 of the first 13 points and never looked back building a 37-17 halftime lead.Stringer was concerned before the game that her team would be under a lot of pressure to win with so many people coming to celebrate the momentous victory. Her team made sure they wouldn’t go home disappointed. Caitlin Jenkins had 14 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Scarlet Knights.Kiana Patterson led Central Connecticut State with 25 points, including the 1,000th of her career.___More AP college basketball: https://apnews.com/Collegebasketball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25___Follow Doug on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/dougfeinberglast_img read more
