Pitt and Penn State didn’t play for 16 years, but the rivalry is back.
The Panthers won a thrilling 42-39 game Saturday at Heinz Field. It was a record crowd for any sporting event in the city of Pittsburgh. And it provided plenty of fireworks after the game.
Pitt wide receiver had a simple response when asked if this victory was different than others. He said Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi told his players that Penn State is “arrogant.”
Quadree Henderson on what made this game and win different: “Just the fact they’re Penn State. Coach Narduzzi said they’re arrogant.”

Henderson had a big game, with three catches for 47 yards and a touchdown and four carries for 58 yards. He helped the Panthers and their fans earn bragging rights for the next 12 months, and hopefully helps kickstart some of the emotional, off-the-field antics that helps make rivalries so great.
