at No. 8 Pittsburgh 27, Notre Dame 22: Jonathan Baldwin made two exceptional catches that allowed the Panthers to open up an 18-point lead in the fourth quarter before the Fighting Irish rallied behind two touchdowns by star Golden Tate but still fell short. The loss by Notre Dame figures to raise more cries for Coach Charlie Weis' ouster. Notre Dame (6-4) trailed 27-9 with 12:44 left after Dion Lewis' 50-yard touchdown run, then came back before Jimmy Clausen fumbled with just over two minutes left. Pitt improved to 9-1 for the first time since 1982.
at Louisville 10, Syracuse 9: Adam Froman passed 15 yards to Josh Chichester for a touchdown with 1:24 left to lift the Cardinals. The victory ended a nine-game conference losing streak for Louisville. Trent Guy's 44-yard punt return set up the Cardinals in Syracuse territory before Chichester outjumped a Syracuse defender for Louisville's first touchdown in nine quarters.
