Wright, who broke his foot Thursday, is expected to miss 10 weeks. The Panthers’ first practice is scheduled for Friday. /sigh

Pitt's Cameron Wright to miss 10 weeks with broken left foot

Pittsburgh's Cameron Wright will miss the next 10 weeks due to a broken left foot, the school announced Friday night. Wright, a fifth-year senior, started all 36 games for the Panthers last season and averaged 10.5 points. He suffered the injury during Friday's practice and now will likely miss November's Maui Invitational and possibly the ACC/Big Ten Challenge on Dec. 2 at Indiana.

Panthers look to bounce back against Akron

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 vs. Akron: Running game likely to be Zips' downfall against Panthers

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...

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...

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: "...

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.

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...
