GAME STORYLINES

√ Pitt travels for a critical Coastal Division clash at Virginia Tech. The Panthers and Hokies are both 1-0 in ACC play. A victory will be key to gaining early momentum in the always competitive Coastal race.

√ Pitt has won two of its past three games with Virginia Tech, including last season’s 47-14 victory at Heinz Field. Pitt, however, has not won in Blacksburg since 2015, losing its last two road games in the series.

√ Since 2015, Pat Narduzzi has directed Pitt to 30 victories in ACC play, tied with Virginia Tech for the third-highest win total during that span. Only Clemson (48) and Miami (32) have won more.

√ Pitt has scored 40-plus points in five consecutive games for the first time ever. The Panthers average a national-best 52.4 points per game.

√ Kenny Pickett has thrown 19 touchdowns against only one interception. Pickett’s TD pass total—already a single-season personal high—ranks fourth in the nation and first in the ACC.

√ Jordan Addison leads the nation with nine touchdown catches. Addison has caught at least one TD in all five games this season. The last Pitt player to catch a TD in six consecutive games was Larry Fitzgerald in 2003.

√ The Panthers are averaging an ACC-high 554.4 yards per game, which ranks third nationally. The Pitt season record for total offense is 452.3 set in 1992.

√ Pitt’s pass rush, perennially among the nation’s best, has produced 18 sacks, an average of 3.60 per game, which ranks eighth nationally. Defensive end Habakkuk Baldonado has a team-high 3.5 sacks.

I would appreciate if someone would post the Video of Pat Narduzzi’s 10/11/2021 press conference and TV time and channel announcement for the 10/23/2021 matchup with Clemson.

I would really appreciate if someone could inform me how how to capture those links so I can add to articles in the future. FYI, I admit that I am NOT computer literate.
