Pitt will open up their 2020 season by hosting the Austin Peay Governors at Heinz Field on Saturday night September, 12th.
Austin Peay Governors
Austin Peay played very sloppily in their first game of the season against Central Arkansas. The Governers managed just 17 points and two of those scores came from their defense causing turnovers.
Breylin Smith struggled to get the ball to his receivers last Saturday as he threw two picks in the game and had just one touchdown in the air. Smith had just a 64.8 QB rating on 49 pass attempts as he only completed 26 of them.
On defense, the Governors seemed like they couldn’t stop the run in their week one matchup. The Bears gathered 189 yards on the ground on 35 attempts in the game and that needs to come down if the Governors want a chance at winning against a power-5 team.
The Panthers are coming off an 8-5 season in head coach Pat Narduzzi’s fifth season. For the second time in his career at Pitt, the Panthers failed to get ranked in the AP poll for the first time in two years. Narduzzi’s goal in 2020 is to get back to being ranked and maybe even fight for an ACC championship.
Kenny Pickett will return has quarterback for his senior season for Narduzzi’s offense in 2020. Pickett threw for just 3000 yards to go with his 13:9 TD to INT ratio. The main part of Pitt’s offense comes through their running game though as they average 3.5 rushing touchdowns a game compared just 1.3 passing TD’s.
Defensively, the Panthers have a very good secondary as they allow just an average of one passing touchdown per game. Pittsburgh struggles at stopping the run game though allowing an average of 300 yards against the rush last season. Hopefully, Narduzzi’s offseason focus was plugging up the run because Pitt has a real shot at competing for an ACC title.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Pick:
Pittsburgh is the play here as Austin Peay can’t keep this perfect ATS run they are on. The Governors might be looking at a change at QB after this game as Breylin Edwards did not look great against a weak Central Arkansas team and I don’t see how fairs well against a power-5 team. Give me Pittsburgh in a blow out to cover the spread.
