It was a Homecoming game to remember: The Panthers scored big for a 77-7 win against the University of New Hampshire, capping off a festive week of scavenger hunts, giveaways, reunions and Pitt spirit.

In the Sept. 25 matchup, Pitt football racked up a record-breaking 707 offensive yards and scored the most points in a game since 1926.

New Hampshire, ranked 22nd in the Football Championship Subdivision, saw any hopes of the school's first win over a Power Five program in 15 years evaporate after falling behind by four touchdowns in the game's first 14 minutes.

During the game’s halftime presentation, the winners of this year’s Spirit of Pitt awards, De’Jovia Davis, a senior urban studies major in the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences, and Ian “Monty” Montelius, a senior pharmacy major, were also announced.
