PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh's offense is starting to click under second-year coach Paul Chryst.
The Panthers put up 58 points and needed every one of them in a three-point victory over Duke on Saturday. Quarterback Tom Savage tied an Atlantic Coast Conference record with six touchdown passes, three to freshman wide receiver Tyler Boyd and two to senior Devin Street. Freshman running back James Conner added a season-high 173 yards rushing.
The performance marked the third straight step forward for Pitt (2-1, 1-1 ACC), which moved over .500 for the first time in Chryst's brief tenure. Chryst praised his players for getting a better grasp of his system but pointed out there's plenty of room for improvement.
Pitt will look for its first three-game winning streak since 2010 when the Panthers host Virginia (2-1) on Saturday afternoon.
