Pitt Week 4 Ultimate Wrap-Up: Deja Vu Edition

THE BIG LEAD:

North Carolina 37 – Pitt 36

It was deja vu for the Panthers. Underdogs on the road playing an opponent with the ability to make big plays through the air. Fourth quarter with a chance to win, and again the ground game and defense failed them.

As disappointing as the OK State game was, it was out of conference and against an opponent with ten straight bowl appearances and double digit wins in four out the past six years.

This past week was a different beast. The Panthers were playing a team that had beaten them the past three seasons, and with a chance to take the drivers seat in the ACC Coastal the team blew a 13 point lead with less than six minutes left.

THE AFTERMATH:

THE VIEW FROM THE OTHER SIDE:

LOOKING AHEAD:

With the loss, Pitt falls to 2-2 overall and 0-1 in the ACC Coastal.

Next week Pitt will play a Marshall team coming off a 59-28 loss to #3 Louisville. The big unknown is whether Marshall QB Chase Litton will be able to play this week. Litton could present a big challenge for the Panthers if he plays, in two games this year the 6-6 QB had 722 yards passing to go along with 10 touchdowns. Not a good matchup for a Pitt defense coming off some record setting (in a bad way) games.
