CINCINNATI -- Pitt fell to Cincinnati 34-10 Thursday night, dropping the Panthers to 0-2 on the season.

The Bearcats jumped out to a 14-0 lead less than five minutes into the game and never looked back. They outgained Pitt 463-415.

Cincinnati quarterback Munchie Legaux completed 14 of 28 passes for 205 yards and two touchdowns. He added 117 yards rushing.

As a team, the Bearcats sliced through Pitt's defense for 259 yards rushing. Their defense was pressuring Pitt quarterback Tino Sunseri all night, and registered six sacks.

If there was a bright spot for Pitt, it's that running back Ray Graham appeared to make continued improvement in his recovery from a torn ACL that cost him the latter part of last season.

Graham, who rushed for 71 yards on 14 carries last week, gained 103 yards on 19 carries Thursday.

The Panthers will return home to Heinz Field next week to take on Virginia Tech. pittsports
