CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Pitt linebacker Seun Idowu called Pitt’s 38-35 loss to North Carolina on Saturday “frustrating.” Quarterback Kenny Pickett said he was “pissed off.” Pat Narduzzi said it was “a little bit of the same old, same old.”
Whatever the characterization, Pitt’s loss was both soul-crushing in the fact that the Panthers have now lost six straight games to North Carolina, including four under Narduzzi.
It was also devastating to the Panthers’ stated goal of winning the ACC Coastal Division. The Panthers are now 1-1 and still have Virginia Tech and Miami, who were projected to win the division, on their future slate.
Here’s Narduzzi, Pickett, Idowu, running back Darrin Hall and wide receiver Taysir Mack on the loss:
