The Syracuse Orange are coming off a close loss against Clemson last weekend, despite being +26 underdogs in the affair. Syracuse held a 16 – 13 lead going in to the 4th quarter, but were unable to stop the Tigers from finding a late win.
The Pittsburgh Panthers have lost three of their last 4 games, and are trying to shake off last weekend’s 45 – 14 defeat to Central Florida. Pitt QB Kenny Pickett was outshined by UCF’s McKenzie Milton, although that may not come as much of a surprise.
Syracuse had Clemson on the ropes in Death Valley this past weekend, but, as mentioned, they let the lead slip away surrendering two 4th quarter TDs. The Syracuse defense was relentless through the first 3 quarters against Clemson, and even knocked out starter Trevor Lawrence early in the game.
Freshman backup QB Chase Brice ended up being the star of the game, and now The Cuse carry a 4 – 1 record into Pittsburgh this weekend.
Pittsburgh QB Kenny Pickett had a rough week 5, completing only 16 passes for 162 passing yards. The running game disappeared as well, as RB Qadree Ollison amassed only 49 yards on the ground in the loss.
Like so many other teams in NCAA football, they had no answer for UCF QB McKenzie Milton. Milton threw for 2 TDs and ran for two more, which is something we accustomed to seeing out of Central Florida,
The Orange open as -4.5 favorites against Pittsburgh, and that line is not quite stiff enough to keep us away from it. The road team has to get that chip back on their shoulder, if they hope to remain an ACC contender.

Syracuse find their fifth win of the 2018 campaign this weekend, and should easily get past Pittsburgh. Obviously nothing is ever easy, but the Cuse front defensive line is absolutely solid!
Eric Dungey has to atone for his poor second half play last weekend, and I expect him to do that against a less experienced Pittsburgh defense.
