Pitt Takes Down #2 Miami
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Miami's perfect season is over. The Hurricanes can only hope their shot at a spot in the College Football Playoff isn't gone too. Freshman quarterback Kenny Pickett ran for two touchdowns and threw for another as Pittsburgh stunned the second-ranked Hurricanes 24-14. Pickett completed 18 of 29 passes for 193 yards and the one score while adding 60 yards rushing in his first career start. Pitt finished a disappointing season with a stunner that could put a dent in the Hurricanes' national title hopes. The ACC Coastal Division champions face No. 4 Clemson in the conference championship game next Saturday that will serve as the ultimate arbiter on whether the Hurricanes are worthy of consideration for the College Football Playoff.

Pens Fall To Bruins
BOSTON (AP) - Matt Grzelcyk scored his first career goal, David Krejci had a goal and an assist and the Boston Bruins stretched their season-long winning streak to four straight in a 4-3 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday. The Pens host Tampa Bay on Saturday night.


Vikings Win Streak Hits Seven
DETROIT (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings picked up their seventh straight win and improved to 9-2 by beating the Lions 30-23 at Detroit. Case Keenum threw for two touchdowns and ran for a score while the Vikings were building a 20-3 lead in the first half. Tight end Kyle Rudolph caught two TD passes and Latavius Murray had 84 yards rushing and a 2-yard score to help the NFC North leaders move three games ahead of the second-place Lions.

Chargers Roll Over Cowboys
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Philip Rivers threw for 434 yards and three touchdowns in the Los Angeles Chargers' 28-6 rout of the Dallas Cowboys. The Chargers racked up 515 total yards, with Keenan Allen collecting a career-high 172 and scoring on one of his 11 receptions. Desmond King returned an interception 90 yards for a touchdown midway through the final period, just over two minutes after the Cowboys reached the end zone for the first time in 11 quarters.

Redskins Knock Off Giants
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - Kirk Cousins threw for a pair of second-half touchdowns as the Washington Redskins doubled up the New York Giants 20-10. Washington's defense didn't allow a touchdown and limited the 2-9 Giants to 47 yards and one first down over the last two quarters. Cornerback Janoris Jenkins scored the Giants' lone TD on a 53-yard interception return that tied the game 10-10 in the second half.


Wash High, Steel Valley to Play for WPIAL Title
Wash High has won 12 straight games and 23 of its last 24. Steel Valley is the defending WPIAL/PIAA champion, winners of 26 straight games. Saturday night, the Little Prexies and Ironmen meet for the WPIAL championship and a berth in the state tournament. Washington owns six district titles, the most recent coming in 2001 on the way to the state championship. Steel Valley has won four WPIAL titles. Both teams struggled in their semifinals but found the ways to win. Wash High committed five turnovers but the defense stuffed Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic repeatedly. Steel Valley survived a near-interception in overtime, then got the game-winning pass play to down Riverside. We'll have
Saturday's game from Robert Morris University's Joe Walton Stadium on WJPA-AM (1450) and online. Airtime is 5:30 pm.
