Mark Konezny-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Syracuse leads Pittsburgh, 14-0, after the first quarter.

A pair of touchdowns has helped the Syracuse Orange earn a 14-0 lead over the Pittsburgh Panthers in a Big East Conference football game that has reached the conclusion of the first quarter. Sophomore running back Adonis Ameen-Moore and sophomore linebacker Dyshawn Davis each scored touchdowns for the Orange (1-3), who are looking to snap a seven-game losing streak to Pitt (2-2).

Moore's first touchdown of the season ended a eight-play, 70-yard drive that took just 3:01. Moore's plunged came on SU's first offensive possession which was setup by a 13-yard screen play by junior running back Prince-Tyson Gulley, who rumbled down to the 1-yard line. A play later Moore scored to help give Syracuse a 7-0 lead with 9:54 remaining.

Davis' score came after teammate, junior safety Jeremi Wilkes, forced a fumble from Pitt sophomore tight end Drew Carsewell. Davis scooped up the ball and with a slew of blockers ran 52 yards into the end zone. The touchdown helped push SU's lead to 14-0 with about a minute to play.

Pitts lone scoring opportunity came on a 42-yard field goal attempt by Kevin Harper, who missed wide right.
