Iowa Hawkeyes at Pittsburgh Panthers: Betting odds, point spread and tv info

Coverage of the game between Iowa and Pittsburgh will air on ESPNU and WatchESPN beginning at 12:00 pm ET from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, PA. The Odds: The...

Onward With Iowa

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...

James Conner will face test in Iowa run defense

Through three games, Pitt running back James Conner has made quick work of opposing defenses in becoming one of the nation's top statistical rushers. So far, however, the competition has been questionable and Conner will have his hands full against an Iowa defense that has looked good to date. As I mentioned in the preview on Monday morning, the Iowa run defense has been tough...

Paul Chryst speaks on benching of Chad Voytik

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: "...

Getting Things Fixed

Over at the Trib, Jerry DiPaola optimistically riffs a bit on the work that Pitt football has to do even after the win on Friday night. A successful team’s goal is to take a lead into the fourth quarter, get the ball and refuse to let it go. Pitt couldn’t do that. Pitt recorded only one first down after taking a 30-14 lead with 9:53 left on Chris Blewitt’s third field goal...

Pitt RB James Conner ranks second in the nation in rushing

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...

What the Heck Was Pitt QB Chad Voytik Doing?

Chad Voytik was able to lead the Pitt Panthers to a 30-20 win over Boston College Friday night for the team's second victory of the season (first being a 62-0 win over Delaware). So he must know what he is doing--right? Well, if that's the case he may need to explain what he was thinking on this play.@SBNationGIF/TwitterRead more »

Pitt's Tyler Boyd Quietly Becoming One of the Best Wide Receivers in the Nation

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...

Pitt Panthers Safety Asks Teammate “What The F*ck Are You Doing?”

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 […] The post Pitt Panthers Safety Asks Teammate “What The F*ck Are You Doing?” appeared...

Pitt loses starting center Artie Rowell to injury in win

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...

Honors And More O-Line

He only played in the first 21 minutes of the game, but it was enough for James Conner to be named the ACC Offensive Player of the Week. 14 carries for 153 yards and 4 TDs will do that. Though, I am kind of surprised Tyler Murphy of BC didn’t get it. Or FSU’s Jameis Winston — out of reflex. I did not know the ACC also did an Offensive Lineman of the week, but that went to senior...

Pitt crushes Delaware in 62-0 win, Tyler Boyd injured in victory

In what was expected to be a comfortable win for Pitt, the Panthers made things look downright ugly with a 62-0 win over Delaware in the team's opener on Saturday. Just about everyone expected Pitt would win, some, like me, thought they could have some trouble if they weren't careful, but it's safe to say that no one could have predicted something this easy. The Panthers...

Pittsburgh and Kentucky Series in the Works, Keg of Nails Remains Dormant

Bill Koch dropped some information this morning over at Cincinnati.com. The most relevant information is that it appears that the Pittsburgh Panthers are coming back on the schedule. Koch says that a series starting in 2023 is looking likely. Cincinnati and Pittsburgh haven’t played since the Panthers took off for the ACC. Cincinnati and Pittsburgh play for this ugly ass trophy...

ACC Countdown: No. 8 Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh did quite well in its inaugural ACC season, beating the teams it should beat more often than not while losing to the teams it should lose to more often than not, too. All that ultimately resulted in a 7-6 record and a bowl game win over Bowling Green. There's a lot of change on this year's roster at important spots, like quarterback and defensive tackle (without...
