The ugly Youngstown State game is now in the rear view mirror and now the Pitt football’s entire focus is on a road trip to take on the #6 team in the country, the Penn State Nittany Lions.
Unlike last year, Pitt won’t enter this game as favorites. In fact, the latest line from Las Vegas for Saturday’s game has James Franklin’s team as 20.5 point favorites. That’s a big line but considering what happened this past weekend with both teams, are you surprised?
In what will be one of his two media availabilities this week, Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi spoke to the media today about Penn State and also announced that linebacker Quintin Wirginis, who was already serving a 3-game suspension, would miss the remainder of the season with a non-football injury.
