Winslow tossed a 15-yard touchdown pass to Nathan Bossory on a gadget-play fake field goal early in the fourth quarter giving the Panthers a 14-10 lead at the time.

The senior punter, who is a contender for All-ACC honors this season, also performed his normal duties very effectively, averaging 49.8 yards on the four punts credited to him with a long of 53 yards.

With one game remaining in the regular season, Winslow is averaging a career-best 44.6 yards on 51 punts in 2017. His average currently ranks second among punters in the ACC.

Winslow will be one of 14 Panthers honored on Senior Day this Friday when Pitt hosts No. 2/2 Miami at Heinz Field for a noon kickoff in front of a national ABC-TV audience.
