Pitt has been streaky this season.
Last week they had a huge game against Virginia Tech and came up just short. A win might have put them in a spot to take the Coastal division but at this point it is most likely all about bowl positioning.
RB James Conner continues to be a feel good story for the Panthers.
A very promising season has derailed quickly for the Hurricanes, who have lost four straight.
I am no psychologist but it is easy to say they never recovered from that one point loss to Florida State.
The rest of the schedule is very winnable though. They need this one to get back on track.
Pitt has played a lot of close games this season.
Add in the return of Conner and it has been a very emotional year.
At 5-3 they have done pretty well but they came up short in most of their games against good competition, save Penn State. Connr leads the team in rushing and has 10 TDs but is definitely not in consideration for the major awards this season.
His return has given them a solid running game for sure but the passing game has struggled.
Not a lot of turnovers but they are not even averaging 200ypg through the air. They are balanced but not very explosive on offense.
Pitt is usually solid on defense and that was the expectation heading into the season but they have struggled.
Only once all season have they given up less than 27 points.
Their numbers show they are strong against the run – 5th – and terrible against the pass – 125th.
Miami can attack them both ways so it will be a challenge.
The Canes have lost four in a row – FSU, North Carolina, Virginia Tech and Notre Dame. All but the loss to Va Tech were close and the last two were on the road.
It seems they might not have been as far along their progressions back to greatness as it seemed.
Coach Richt should be able to prove his worst eventually and can begin doing that by getting the team back on track to win their final four games.
To do so he has to find a way to get the mojo back. Maybe no other program in the country plays off emotion like the Hurricanes. I am looking for them to be aggressive early in this one and go for some knockout blows on offense and defense.
All the numbers point to this being more than a .500 program but I guess that is how it should be when you dominate early and lose close games.
Some love Brad Kaaya as an NFL prospect but I would like to see more from him.
He seems like he might be the Jay Cutler type and we all know that ain’t good. They can run the ball usually but this one might fall on him if the Panthers are stout.

Miami has really let me down the last month. I am totally ready to write them off but I think this number at home can be a really strong play.
They should be able to win by a touchdown or more.

The key in this one is that the Miami defense will be able to load up on a predictable Pittsburgh attack. When the running game is not getting returns I do not trust the Panthers to be able to counter in a meaningful way.
