The Pittsburgh Panthers pulled out all the stops Saturday at home defeating the UCF Knights 35-34 and won on a fourth-down trick-play touchdown.

With under a minute remaining, facing 4th-and-3 from the UCF four-yard line, the Panthers ran a trick play that fooled the Knights completely.

Watch as Aaron Mathews threw a pass to Kenny Pickett for the game-winner.

This play capped off what was a truly stunning overall game that had an abundance of twists and turns.

Pitt nearly gave this one away, but in the end the Panthers rebounded quite nicely from last weekend’s debacle in Happy Valley.
