Virginia Commonwealth was looking for a little more last-moment magic, and almost got it. The team that upset Duke trailed Pittsburgh by 19 points Saturday, then used a tenacious trapping press to come back, landing in overtime after Pittsburgh's Levance Fields missed two free throws with 2.1 seconds left in regulation. Then Pittsburgh grabbed back the game it nearly gave away, and the third-seeded Panthers escaped with an 84-79 overtime victory over 11th-seeded Virginia Commonwealth.

"To think that there's four or five teams in major football undefeated, I never thought that would happen because teams are too good," Meyer said. The Utes are one of four Division I-A unbeatens.
