LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Tino Sunseri threw for one touchdown and ran for another to lead Pittsburgh to its first road win under new coach Todd Graham, 21-14, over Louisville on Saturday, ending the Cardinals' three-game winning streak.

Pittsburgh (5-5, 3-2 Big East) had been slumping with three losses in its previous four games, but ran over Louisville's stout defense, starting off with a 12-play, 80-yard scoring drive capped by freshman Isaac Bennett's 1-yard TD run.

Sunseri found Mike Shanahan for a 17-yard score on Pittsburgh's first drive of the second half and ran in for a 5-yard touchdown with 1:53 left as the Panthers continued their success against Louisville (5-5, 3-2) with their fourth straight win in the series.

Victor Anderson scored from 3 yards out late in the third, but the Cardinals didn't reach the end zone again until Teddy Bridgewater's 25-yard TD pass with 12 seconds left.
