Young's tip-in broke a 48-48 tie and he followed with a jump shot with a minute left before Jermaine Dixon closed it out with two layups for the Panthers (12-0), who nearly wasted a 17-0 run that gave them a 43-34 lead with 8:53 left.
But Florida State (11-2) caught up one more time and tied it at 48 on Uche Echefu's jumper with 2:23 left.
Toney Douglas scored 20 points to lead the Seminoles, who shot 29.8 percent. No other Florida State player had more than two field goals.
Dixon, who played for Tallahassee Community College the last two years, finished with 11 points and DeJuan Blair added 10 points and 12 rebounds, helping Pitt to a 42-36 advantage on the boards.
