Pitt loses leading tackler

By Heather Dinich

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh just lost its leading tackler, linebacker Dan Mason, to an injury. Mason was carted off the field with what appeared to be a leg injury.

There wasn't any update yet here in the press box, but that's obviously a huge loss for the Pitt defense. Mason is the Panthers' regular starter but he was demoted this game for disciplinary reasons.
