DETROIT (AP) - James Conner rushed for 229 yards - breaking a Pittsburgh bowl record held by Tony Dorsett - and Chris Blewitt kicked a tiebreaking field goal with 1:17 remaining, lifting the Panthers to a 30-27 win over Bowling Green on Thursday night in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl.
  Conner also played a handful of snaps on the defensive line, and fellow freshman Tyler Boyd gave Pitt (7-6) a boost with eight catches for 173 yards.
Boyd also scored on a punt return in the first half, although Bowling Green (10-4) tied it at 17 when BooBoo Gates took the second-half kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown.
Dorsett rushed for 202 yards in Pitt's win over Georgia in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1, 1977.
  Former Cleveland high school quarterback Chad Voytik stepped in to play quarterback in the second half when the Panthers starter went down with an injury. Voytik scored on a five yard run in the fourth quarter. He also threw for 108-yards.
