Pitt coach Paul Chryst says the Panthers are still searching for consistency heading into a vital stretch that will determine whether the Panthers make it to a bowl game for the fifth straight season. Though Pitt improved to 3-4 with a victory over Buffalo on Saturday, the Panthers struggled for long stretches against the overmatched Bulls. Chryst says cohesion has been a problem at times and the inability to run the ball in crucial moments needs to be addressed soon. Pitt is winless in the Big East (0-3) heading into Saturday's game against Temple (3-3, 2-1) and wide receiver Mike Shanahan says the Panthers can't afford to lose any more conference games if they want their season to extend beyond December 1.
