PITTSBURGH (AP) Pitt sophomore running back James Conner leads the nation in rushing.
The Panthers will lean on him heavily Saturday when they face Akron.
Pitt (3-1) is coming off a 24-20 loss to Iowa last weekend, a game in which the Panthers blew a 10-point lead. Conner ran for 155 yards and a touchdown but had just 23 yards over the final 29 minutes as the Hawkeyes rallied.

I touched on this a bit in the opening preview on Monday, but the more you look at it, the more it seems like the running game will be key for Pitt in their game against Akron on Saturday.
The Panthers have one of the best rushing attacks in the nation, so we know what they're going to be doing. The ball is going to James Conner and other than getting quarterback Chad Voytik...

The AIRBHG (Angry Iowa Running Back Hating God) has not yet struck this year, but last year he did so to a RB that some Iowans liken to James Conner.
“I’m not worried about how much he wants it as much as what we need and if he’s doing something with it,” Panthers coach Paul Chryst said last week. “I’ve worked with a lot of backs. We feel like we’ve got a pretty good...
In the second half of Pitt's game against Florida International, head coach Paul Chryst made a curious move by replacing starting quarterback Chad Voytik with backup Trey Anderson. The move only lasted a series but with the Panthers up by only seven, the move made little sense to, well, just about everyone.
Afterwards, Chryst spoke on his decision. Per the Trib-Review:
Pitt's James Conner is having a heck of a season so far. Despite being used sparingly in the Panthers' opener against Delaware, the Pitt running back is among the nation's best in rushing yardage.
Conner has 367 rushing yards through two games and ranks second in all of the FBS. His 367 yards are behind only UTEP running back Aaron Jones and his five rushing touchdowns...
It's been awhile since the Pitt Panthers have gotten a lot of national attention. They were a bowl team each of the last three seasons (six actually), but in each of those seasons they finished 7-6. 6-7, and 6-7. So it's understandable if they are not on the national radar just yet.That's kind of shame because football fans are missing out on watching one of the best...
Pittsburgh Panthers safety Ray Vinopal was not pleased with his teammate Terrish Webb. Webb had just intercepted a pass to secure the win, but rather than take a knee and call it a day, he started to run out of the end zone before ducking under a tackler. Vinopal ran over to his teammate and […]

For the second consecutive week, Pitt suffered an injury to a key player.
Last week, the Panthers lost Tyler Boyd to a dislocated finger. Boyd did return for Friday's game against Boston College, but missed the second half of that Delaware opener. On Friday, it was starting center Artie Rowell going down.
If you saw the play, Rowell went down on what seemed like a relatively...
