PITTSBURGH (AP) — Kurt Hess passed for 154 yards and two touchdowns as Youngstown State of the Football Championship Subdivision spoiled Paul Chryst's debut as Pittsburgh's coach in a 31-17 upset on Saturday night in the season opener for both schools.


Andre Stubbs ran for 71 yards and a score, and also added 61 yards receiving and another touchdown as the Penguins beat a Football Bowl Subdivision team for the first time in 12 years. It was the team's first win over Bowl Championship Series opponent in history.


This wasn't a last-second stunner. The Penguins never trailed, controlling the ball and the tempo with a spread offense that kept the Panthers off balance during a soggy night at Heinz Field.


Tino Sunseri threw for 239 yards and a score for Pitt, but the Panthers had no answer for the Penguins while losing to a FCS program for the first time.
