Oregon States Win Low Scoring Game At The Sun Bowl

By  | 

EL PASO, Texas -- In the lowest-scoring major bowl game in a half-century, No. 24 Oregon State shut down No. 18 Pittsburgh 3-0 in the Sun Bowl on Justin Kahut's 44-yard field goal late in the first half today in El Paso.
The defensive struggle included 20 punts and nine sacks. Pitt
kicker Connor Lee tried a 58-yard field goal in the closing minutes
but the ball, helped by a steady wind, dropped just short of the
crossbar.
Not since Air Force and TCU played to 0-0 standoff in the Cotton
Bowl on January 1st, 1959, had a bowl produced so few points.
The Beavers (9-4) improved to 5-0 in bowls since coach Mike
Riley began his second stint as their coach in 2003. Pitt (9-4)
managed just 178 total yards.
It was the lowest-scoring Sun Bowl since a scoreless tie in 1940
between Catholic and Arizona State.
