Ohio is one of the best progams in MAC. They might be the underdog here but they are a real threat to deliver a second loss to Pitt. They have the better quarterback and that is a good start.
Pitt lost their opener against Virginia at home. They were not the favourite so there is not reason to panic but per the intro they could be 0-2 without it being a shock.
Ohio eased into the season with a 41-20 win over Rhode Island. Now they are onto three straight nonconference FBS opponents.
QB Nathan Rourke is the best in the MAC and he got himself off to a great start with 188 yards passing and 75 on the ground. He was efficient and looks poised for a nice season.
Ohio was run heavy against URI an that is the way they generally want to go. It works in the MAC but can be tougher against Power 5 teams.
Ohio lost to but pushed a good Virginia team last year. They posted 31 points. If they can do that again they are going to be in this game for sure. .
Pitt is looking to rebound from a loss to Virginia that has to sting a little. The Cavs are the better team but Pitt was up at half and did not score in the second half, or the first quarter. They need their offense to get on track.
Kenny Pickett was bad against UVA. He threw two interceptions and barely complete 50% of his passes. They are waiting for him to show he can lead the team.
Not helping matters was that Pitt could not run the ball against Virginia. They should have a much easier time in this one and give Pickett a much better chance to succeed.
Pitt desperately needs this one in my opinion even though it is not a conference game. Otherwise there is a great chance they are 0-4 with Penn State and UCF after that. They are supposed to win but I am super high on this team.

Love the underdog here. Ohio steps up in competition but they are well coached and not travelling far. Upset alert.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Ohio +5.5
This one has already come down from the opening number. Pittsburgh is not a disaster, yet, but there is not muck to like given their quarterbacking problem hardly seems to have improved. Yes it is early.
With the number moving don’t wait on this one. I will be sprinkling a little on the money line too. Let’s be bold and give Nathan Rourke and the Bocats the upset.
