√ Pitt can claim its second ACC Coastal Division championship in four seasons when the Panthers host Virginia at Heinz Field this Saturday.
√ Pitt, atop the Coastal with a 5-1 ACC record, can clinch the division and a trip to the Subway ACC Championship Game with a win over the Cavaliers (4-2).
√ Pitt has one Coastal title to its credit, winning the division in 2018. Virginia captured the Coastal in 2019.
√ Pitt has won four of the past five meetings with Virginia. The Cavaliers, however, won the last encounter, 30-14, in the 2019 season opener played at Heinz Field.
√ Since 2015, Pat Narduzzi has directed Pitt to 34 victories in ACC play, the third-highest win total during that span. Only Clemson (51) and Miami (35) have won more.
√ Kenny Pickett is having an All-America caliber season. Pickett ranks fourth nationally—and second among Power 5 quarterbacks —with 32 touchdown passes. He has thrown only four interceptions this year.
√ Pickett needs only 163 yards to set the Pitt single-season passing yardage record. He has thrown for 3,517 yards this season, second only to Rod Rutherford’s 3,679 in 2003.
√ Pickett is piloting the nation’s No. 2 unit in total offense at 531.1 yards per contest. The Panthers rank fourth nationally in scoring, averaging 43.5 points a game.
√ Wide receiver Jordan Addison is also producing at an All-America level. Addison is tied for the national lead with 11 touchdown catches, the most by a Pitt player since Larry Fitzgerald had a school-record 22 in 2003.
