With all the non conference games out of the way, it’s time to turn to the ACC play.
Two teams who figure to compete in the ACC Coastal Division meet as the Pittsburgh Panthers and North Carolina Tar Heels battle it out on Saturday afternoon.
The Panthers have been involved in back to back high scoring affairs, something this team isn’t really used to.
Pittsburgh held off Penn State by 3, but couldn’t fight off the late rush from Oklahoma State as they dropped to 2-1 on the season after their 45-38 loss.
The Panthers defense allowed 540 yards through the air, which has been a major concern for this team here in the early going.
With the struggles that the defense has had, the offense has been asked to do a lot and has responded in a big way.
Pittsburgh has averaged 36 points per game, which is especially a lot considering the way they run their offense.
The Panthers have leaned on James Conner, who has 281 yards on the season and has averaged 4.5 yards per carry.
He’ll get the touches here in this one, as the Panthers try to get the ball to him in any way possible and let him go to work.
North Carolina Tar Heels
The Tar Heels will look to continue rolling on at home.
They’ll seek their 9th straight win in North Carolina, as they continue to look for production from their youthful group.
QB Mitch Trubisky is making quite the statement in his first year as a starter.
Trubisky tossed for 432 yards on 24 of 27 and had a streak of 18 straight completions last time out. He’ll be going up against a secondary that has just struggled, especially through the air.
Defensively, they have to find a way to get themselves some stops. They have allowed 4.9 yards per carry this season, which clearly doesn’t bode well when they have to go up against Connor here.
They’ll have Nazair Jones back this week, which is a giant boost, but they’ll need more than just him to step up.
