Why Pitt Will Win

The balance of the Pitt offense might be too much for the Miami defense.

The Panthers might not be cranking up the production, and they might not be all that explosive, but they’ve been steady, the run defense has been a rock, and the pass rush should live behind the Hurricane line.

The Miami offensive front is struggling for the running game, the Pitt pass rush is the third best in America, and it all feeds into a slight tweak of styles overall compared to the last few years.

That balanced offense is dominating the clock. Miami has to win the time of possession battle, and it won’t. However …

Why Miami Will Win

Miami has to keep the Pitt ground game from taking over.

The Canes are 0-4 when allowing more than 130 yards on the ground and 2-5 when giving up more than 95. Load up against the Panther running game, get the pass rush working, and takeaways, takeaways, takeaways.

The defense forced seven over the last two games and two or more six times. The offense isn’t doing enough consistently well to produce without a little bit of help, and that might come from the Pitt offense that’s had its moments giving it away.

The three turnovers were a killer in the loss to Georgia Tech, the four were a disaster in the loss to Louisville, and …

What’s Going To Happen

The Miami defensive front might come up with two takeaways, but it won’t be strong enough against the run.

Pitt has only failed to hit 100 rushing yards once this year – a win over West Virginia – and it’ll get the ground attack moving early on in this. The other side will come up with at least five sacks to stall too many promising Miami drives.

The Canes are 0-7 when allowing more than 14 points. Pitt only scored fewer than 19 in the 24-10 loss to Louisville.

Pitt vs Virginia Game Preview

Why Pitt Will Win

Pitt has been a disappointment coming off the ACC championship season, and it starts with an offense that can’t seem to get anything consistently going.

It doesn’t have to do a whole lot to worry about, though, against a Virginia team that doesn’t have enough of an offense to worry about.

Yeah, the Cavalier passing game clicked against North Carolina, but everyone looks like Tennessee against that group. The O averages just 18 points per game, it’s the worst in the ACC in time of possession, and Pitt should be able to take advantage of both things.

It’s time for the Panther offense to start doing more and getting the ground game back, but …

CFP Rankings: Think, Know, Believe

Why Virginia Will Win

Pitt isn’t exactly lighting it up.

The offense was inconsistent early in the year, and it has good parts to find ways to keep things moving, but there hasn’t been enough of a commitment to the ground game to take over.

Kedon Slovis and the passing attack have been underwhelming, and Virginia has the defense to keep the score low and the game close.

What’s been the problem? The Cavaliers don’t have enough from the passing game that was so great throughout last year, but they should be able to take some chances.

Turnovers have been a problem for the UVa O, but they’ve slowed over the last two games. Pitt – even with all the pressure it applies – hasn’t come up with a takeaway over the last two games and has just three in the last six.

Schedules, Predictions CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

Virginia has GOT to keep the turnovers to a bare minimum.

This is going to be a low scoring battle with every mistake becoming a massive deal.

Can Pitt hit enough passes? Can Virginia find enough of a running game to keep up? It’s not going to be anything pretty, but the Panthers will commit enough to the ground attack to get a tough win and get bowl eligible.

Syracuse vs Pitt Game Preview

Why Syracuse Will Win

Pitt isn’t playing well.

Syracuse lost in a tough battle to Clemson and at home to Notre Dame after the banged up team got hurt further, but Pitt has lost three of its last four with the only win over a hapless Virginia Tech.

The Panther offensive line allows way too many plays in the backfield, the passing attack hasn’t been good enough – it hasn’t hit 60% against an FBS program since mid-September – and now it all has to deal with the statistical-best defense in the ACC.

The Orange might be hurting, but they can still get into the backfield and hold up against the good passing teams, but …

Breaking down the CFP Top 25 rankings

Why Pitt Will Win

How healthy is Syracuse?

QB Garrett Shrader is a game time decision, the defensive front is beaten up, and it’s not even going to get a whole lot better in the November grind.

The team was able to hold up well against Clemson, but Notre Dame was able to run too easily and hold down the Orange offense from doing much of anything right.

No, Pitt might not be playing all that well, and the Syracuse defense really is okay even with all the bumps and bruises. The Panthers, though, should be able to control the clock, the defensive front continues to be solid at generating pressure, and that might be just enough.

Essentially, Syracuse is playing like it could use a week or two off, and it’s not going to get it. On the other side …

Schedules, Predictions CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

Pitt needs the win.

At Virginia, Duke, and at Miami is what the Panthers have to close, and they should be able to win two of the last three to get bowl eligible. They don’t and won’t want to mess with it.

They’ll start running right away and keep on pounding until Syracuse proves it can hold up. Pitt is 3-0 when running for more than 230 yards, and it won’t get there.

It’s not going to be anything easy, but the Orange will rise up just enough defensively to hold on, the passing attack will work no matter who’s under center, and finally, Sean Tucker and the ground game will get moving.

Pitt at North Carolina Game Preview

Why Pitt Will Win

It’s been an up-and-down season, but that works if you’re a fan of patterns.

The Panthers have gone win-loss-win-loss in the last four games, with the success mostly depending on the steadiness of the ground game.

Things usually go well when they run for 200 yards or more – going 3-0 when they do – and it helps when they’re not turning the ball over in bunches like they did in losses to Georgia Tech and Louisville.

North Carolina was able to stuff the Virginia Tech and Miami rushing attacks, but it’s getting hammered for well over 200 yards by everyone else.

But …

NFL Expert Picks, Week 8

Why North Carolina Will Win

North Carolina is winning despite the ACC’s worst run defense struggling as much as it is.

The offense continues to rip through everyone with a highly-efficient passing game that’s averaging well over 300 yards per game, and it helps that the running game is working, too.

The Panthers are usually able to hit 150 yards on the ground without a problem – the one time they didn’t was in the loss to Notre Dame.

They might not get to 150 against Pitt, but the offense has enough firepower through the air to overcome that.

– Game Previews, Predictions CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

North Carolina’s offense will make Pitt press, and that’s where the mistakes will come.

The Panthers have turned it over eight times in the last three games and are 0-3 when giving it up multiple times. North Carolina doesn’t force turnovers, but it’ll get two in this, Drake Maye will throw for well over 300 yards, and the Tar Heels – despite the D – will keep on rolling.
