Scoring began in the first quarter with the two teams trading field goals. Early in the second quarter, Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio Bryant caught a touchdown pass on an 80-yard drive to take the lead 10-3. On their next possession, Bryant caught another touchdown on a 99-yard drive. North Carolina State countered with a 90-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Gregory Golden, but the Pitt Panthers then scored another touchdown as time expired to go into halftime with a 24-10 lead.

Coming out of the half, Pitt scored another field goal for the only points of the 3rd quarter to make it 27-10, but the Wolfpack put together two scoring drives for a touchdown and a field goal to make it 27-19 in the 4th. NC State had one last opportunity to tie or take the lead on a late possession, but quarterback Philip Rivers was sacked, lost the football, and Pittsburgh scooped it up for a score, winning 34-19.
