Two 6-3 teams who have a history of scoring a lot of points when it comes to playing head-to-head get set for a Saturday afternoon showdown.
The past two matchups in the Pitt-Duke series have ended 51-48 and 58-55.
This game will showcase some of the best in the ACC such as Tyler Boyd and Thomas Sirk.
Currently, Pittsburgh sits in 2nd place behind 5-0 UNC, but will need a lot of help as they do not own the tiebreaker against the Tar Heels.
Pittsburgh has suffered two straight losses and both have really been games where they shot themselves in the foot and still had chances to win.
Their biggest lost came two weeks ago at home against UNC as they fell 26-19. The loss set them back essentially 2 games in the ACC Coastal division as they trail the Tar Heels by 1 game, but virtually 2 with the tie breaking rules.
Now, Pittsburgh must simply win out and get some major help from it’s conference rivals to have a chance at an ACC title.
QB Nate Peterman has played well enough in both losses, but he’s still been a bit inconsistent at times which has led to some mistakes. On the season, Peterman has thrown for 11 touchdowns to just 4 interceptions while completing 63.2 percent of his passes.
RB Qadree Ollison has handled the ground portion of the Panthers offense with 748 yards and 8 touchdowns on the season.
Expect the Panthers to really try and work in a ground game on Saturday as they like to control the clock and keep the opposing offense off the field.
Duke’s football program has really turned themselves around over the past seasons and they continue to find themselves in the postseason.
Sitting at 3-2 in the conference, they are likely just playing for a better bowl opportunity and if they can finish the season with 3 wins, they’d be looking at close to a New Years day bowl or even grab one of those spots.
QB Thomas Sirk leads the Blue Devils offensively with 1979 yards and 12 touchdowns on the season. Sirk is completing 58.7 of his passes and has thrown just 5 interceptions to those 12 touchdowns.
Sirk also has the ability to beat opponents with his legs. He’s rumbled his way for 559 yards on the ground to lead the team and added 5 touchdowns.
With the Duke program being completely turned around, Saturday will also hold a bit of a sentimental for a lot of players. This will be the final home game for 23 Duke Seniors who all have a helping hand in making this not just a basketball school. Those 23 Seniors won 31 games over their time at Duke, making them the winningest class in school history.
