Pelini loses debut at Youngstown State

• PITTSBURGH 45, YOUNGSTOWN STATE 37: Youngstown State's rally fell short in Bo Pelini's debut as Penguins coach. The visiting Penguins were trying to beat the Panthers for the second time in four years. "We did some bone-headed things," said Pelini, hired last December to return to his hometown after seven eventful seasons at Nebraska. "We missed some tackles on defense. We made enough errors, some first-game errors, enough to hurt us. And there's your result." Pat Narduzzi was coaching his first game for Pittsburgh.

•COLORADO STATE 65, SAVANNAH STATE 13: Nick Stevens threw for 289 yards and five TDs in his first career start, giving Mike Bobo a win in his Rams head coaching debut. Colorado State plays host to the Gophers next weekend.

•NORTH DAKOTA 24, WYOMING 13: John Santiago ran for 148 yards and two touchdowns to lead visiting North Dakota to its first win in seven tries over an FBS opponent.

•PORTLAND STATE 24, WASHINGTON STATE 17: The visiting Vikings beat a Pac-12 team for the first time in 15 tries and lifted their record to 3-32 against FBS teams. It was the Cougars' first loss to an FCS team in 20 outings.
