This ACC matchup features the Panthers traveling to New York to face the Orange.
Pitt comes in after an easy win over Rice while Syracuse lost a close game to NC State.
Pitt’s offense has struggled to throw the ball all season long, but had a breakthrough performance against Conference USA opponent rice.
USC graduate transfer Max Browne easily had his best game of the season, throwing for over 400 yards and 4 touchdowns. He had just 1 touchdown pass in the 4 previous games and will look to continue the strong play.
The Orange secondary did a good job of shutting down the Wolfpack passing game, so Browne may struggle to put up big numbers in this one.
Jester Weah had a big play early in the game with a 55 yard touchdown grab, and finished the game with 5 catches for 137 yards and the score.
Another big game should be in store for the talented wideout and I expect him to get a touchdown this week.
The Pitt defense held up against an inferior opponent, forcing three interceptions and completely stuffing the Rice rushing attack. The defense will have to be opportunistic against the Syracuse passing game to ensure a victory.
Syracuse lost a tough game to NC State last week, and will look to rebound with a win over their former Big East rival Pitt.
Eric Dungey had a good offensive game, throwing for over 375 yards with a touchdown and 2 scores on the ground.
The talented QB will have to make plays through the air and on the ground and I think he will be able to match his numbers from last week.
Ervin Phillips dominated the Wolfpack secondary, as he caught 17 passes for 188 yards. He surprisingly did not find the end zone but always seemed to be open when Dungey dropped back to pass.
He won’t finish the game with 10+ catches, but he will find the end zone this week.
The Syracuse defense seemed to start the game off really sluggish, giving up 26 points in the first half. The rushing defense gave up two scores on the ground in the first half but turned it around in the 3rd quarter, and only gave up 1 score in the final 30 minutes.
Facing an offense that struggled in the first 4 games of the season throwing the ball, expect the Orange secondary to put up an excellent effort.
