Pittsburg coasted into halftime with a 33-0 lead on Atlanta (2-2) and never looked back.
Pirates senior running back Tray Walker did most of Pittsburg's damage, rushing for 167 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries. Elijah Boyd added 56 yards and a pair of scores on 16 carries.
Pittsburg quarterback Brian Baca completed 12 of 19 attempts for 119 yards and a touchdown. Damien Porter caught six passes for 51 yards and a score, and tossed an 11-yard touchdown to Deldric Shields.
