This Friday night contest features two ACC Coastal division rivals. Both teams have only one conference loss, so a win here could end up being a huge boost to sending one of these teams to the ACC title game in December.
Last year, Pittsburgh crushed Virginia 31-14, but with a much improved Cavaliers squad, this is likely to be a much closer game. The Cavaliers will be looking to snap a three game losing streak to the Panthers and will have their home crowd behind them in this years’ meeting.
The Panthers are a measly 4-4 overall this year, but more importantly they are 3-1 in ACC play. As of right now they are one of three teams tied for first in the Coastal, so an upset over the Cavaliers would increase their chances of not only a chance at the title game, but it will put them one win away from bowl eligibility.
Pittsburgh has seen most of their offensive success come from the running game. They are 22nd in the nation with 227.9 rushing yards per game. Qadree Ollison leads the team in rushing with 795 yards and seven total touchdowns. While the Cavaliers have a solid run defense, the Panthers will most definitely need to establish the run early if they are to upset the Cavaliers.
Defense has been one of the main issues for the Panthers this season. They are allowing 32.6 points per game, which ranks near the bottom at 97th. In fact, almost all their defensive stats ranks in the 90’s.
The Cavaliers are having a solid season so far, and sit at 6-2 overall and 4-1 in conference play. A win over the Panthers could potentially set up a winner take all for the Coastal division when Virginia and Virginia Tech face off at the end of the season. First things first, the Cavaliers pretty much have to win this game to get to that point.
The Cavaliers offense have really just been average through 8 games this season. Their best offensive stat ranking wise is their rushing attack. They average 185.5 rushing per game, which ranks 51st in the nation.
The Virginia defense has been overall solid this year. They are only allowing 113 rushing yards per game, which ranks 20th in the country. They allow an average of 18.8 points per game, which is 18th. If the Cavaliers can shut down the Pittsburgh run game, they should have a pretty easy time at home.
