Rhode Island Rams (2-2)


Abanikanda scores 4 TDs, No 24 Pitt beats Rhode Island 45-24

PITTSBURGH (AP) Tailback Israel Abanikanda rushed for four touchdowns and quarterback Kedon Slovis was solid in his return from injury as No. 24 Pittsburgh beat Rhode Island 45-24 on Saturday.

The Panthers (3-1) have been searching for a top-tier running game since Qadree Ollison and Darrin Hall both rushed for more than 1,000 yards in 2018. Pitt relied on Kenny Pickett and the passing game since, including the program's first ACC championship last season. But with Pickett in the NFL and Slovis sidelined last week, the Panthers have leaned on the ground game and Abanikanda has emerged in a big way.

"I'm not surprised because I know what I'm capable of," Abanikanda said. "I'm going to keep working to try and do even better."
