The Orange have changed the way they play but the results are not there yet on the field.
They have lost their last three but I am expecting them to let it all hang out in this one as they have nothing to lose.
Look for one of the best passing attacks in the nation to really ramp it up. Win or lose.
Pitt is looking to finish strong.
The season got off to a good start win a win over Penn State but in ACC play they have fallen short in most of their big games.
There will definitely be some emotion on that field as it might be the last home game for RB James Conner (if he goes pro).
New coach Dino Babers has juiced up the passing game.
QB Eric Dungey is not a household name but he has been the prime beneficiary of the new system, unfortunately he is still not likely to play with concussion symptoms.
Reserve Zach Mahoney has not been nearly as good in the system but will likely start.
The guy who is most effected is Amba Etta-Tawo. His name may be hard to forget but he has burst onto the scene after starting his career at Maryland.
He is 7th in the nation in receiving yards.
Syracuse is exhibit #497 that it is much easier to turn things around on offense than on defense.
They are 109th in the country, giving up 35ppg as they just don’t have the same calibre of players on that side of the ball to compete with a lot of league opponents.
All you have to do is look at how they had no answers to the top teams in the league – Clemson, Louisville and Florida State.
Pittsburgh is more their speed though.
Pitt is a respectable program looking to break through in the ACC. A couple of weeks ago they got a monster win at Clemson they are still lacking consistency.
They are close as several of their games, both win and lose have been decided by a TD or less. No team is more balanced offensively as they average 214ypg running and throwing.
On the ground Conner is a load while QB Nathan Peterman has eclipsed his numbers from a year ago with this one and certainly a bowl game in his future.
The defense has been a real letdown this season giving up 33ppg.
In ACC play they have given up less than 30 points in a game only twice and that puts a lot of pressure on their offense. Ejuan Price is the next in a long line of really good defensive linemen.
He is 4th in the nation in sack and will look to disrupt the timing of the Orange passing game.
He might be their most important player in this one.

Free Week 13 NCAA Football Prediction
This number is bigger than expected for a game without much meaning.
These are two former Big East schools but I don’t think they developed much of a rivalry, at least not on the gridiron.
There is no reason for Syracuse to not put forth a good effort. Though weather could slow them down.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Syracuse +24.5
Weather could be the key here. If it is a relatively good track then I think Syracuse will have some success moving the ball.
Their QB will have that much more experience and Pittsburgh is probably not looking to really grind this thing out so late in the season with nothing on the line.
