11/23/13 - Isaac Bennett scored the decisive touchdown on a 5-yard run on the final play of the third quarter, Tom Savage passed for 218 yards and another score, and Pittsburgh rallied past Syracuse 17-16 on Saturday in a critical game for both teams. Both needed a victory to become eligible for the postseason, and Pitt (6-5, 3-4 ACC) got the job done. Syracuse (5-6, 3-4) has one more chance next week at home against Boston College.
Trailing with time winding down in the third, Savage directed a nine-play, 88-yard drive to give the Panthers the winning score. After taking a hard hit from blitzing linebacker Marquis Spruill, Savage hit tight end J.P. Holtz for 16 yards on third down, and the ball was moved another 15 yards to the Syracuse 43 after an unsportsmanlike conduct was whistled against the Orange. Savage hit Holtz again for 11 yards on the right side, and Manasseh Garner caught two more passes for 27 yards to set up Bennett's run. - AP Sports
10/07/13 - Pitt quarterback Tom Savage, who has been suffering from concussion-like symptoms, will be available when the Panthers meet Virginia Tech on Saturday. Savage was injured vs. Virginia on Sept. 28, and left that game. The Panthers were off last week after the 14-3 win over the Cavaliers. "Tom has been cleared," Pitt coach Paul Chryst said, before looking at the remainder of his injuries. "I think we're going to get (starting middle linebacker) Shane (Gordon) back. He's going to try to go, and we'll see where he's at. (Defensive end Bryan) Murphy missed the last couple games, (but) we think he's going to go." Pitt (3-1, 2-1 ACC) has pleasant memories vs. the No. 24 Hokies (5-1, 2-0). Virginia Tech was ranked No. 12 when the Panthers posted a 35-17 win at Heinz Field last season. - AP Sports

Pitt spokesman E.J. Borghetti said Monday that Savage is only dealing with "mild symptoms" and is making progress.
