2022 Season Up Next: Pitt at Miami

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, I will be doing a condensed version of the Up Next articles. I will only be showing Miami stats and data. Yes, there will be some Pitt – Miami comparisons but no Pitt names and stats.

Notice there is no MAC conference official tie-in. At this time, including Notre Dame, there are 10 bowl eligible ACC teams.

Two other teams can be bowl eligible if they win their last game – Georgia Tech vs. Georgia and Miami vs. Pitt
