Pitt steps in in class today. Syracuse has a legitimate NFL talent at safety, and solid ACC level talent across the rest of their defensive backfield. Pitt probably needs to establish the run early to have success, and You’d like to see them execute just as crisply as they did last week. Of course you shouldn’t expect guys to be running free in the defensive backfield this time.
On defense it’s just a matter of how much time Syracuse’s patchwork offensive line can buy DeVito.
Pitt has a chance to make a statement today. 31-6 or better (the UNC score) earns us a modicum of respect. An ugly win by a touchdown or less likely knocks us down a peg. Let’s see what the fellas can do…
Hail to Pitt
