NO. 24 TENNESSEE 34, NO. 17 PITTSBURGH 27, OT

PITTSBURGH — Hendon Hooker threw for 325 yards and two touchdowns, the final one a 28-yard heave to Cedric Tillman in overtime, and No. 24 Tennessee edged No. 17 Pitt 34-27 in overtime on Saturday.

The Volunteers (2-0) picked up the first significant nonconference win under second-year coach Josh Heupel by relying on Hooker and a defense that was just good enough against a game effort by the Panthers (1-1), who lost starting quarterback Kedon Slovis to an injury at the end of the first half.
