CINCINNATI -- Dion Lewis ran for a career-high 261 yards and four touchdowns on a snow-covered field Saturday, leading Pittsburgh to a 28-10 victory over Cincinnati and a share of the Big East title.
The Panthers (7-5, 5-2) had a one-game lead a week earlier, giving Connecticut a chance to claim the conference's BCS bowl berth with a victory on Saturday night against USF.
For Pitt, this was about bad memories.
A steady snow buried the yard lines and reminded both teams of their matchup one year ago at Heinz Field, where the Bearcats rallied from a 31-10 deficit to a 45-44 win in the final minute. Cincinnati got its second straight Big East title and a Sugar Bowl appearance. Pittsburgh got a heartache that hadn't gone away.
Lewis eased it a bit. The sophomore had his second huge game against Cincinnati (4-8, 2-5), carrying 42 times.
