Pitt-UNC Monday Morning Aftermath: Now What?

Pitt-UNC Monday Morning Aftermath: Now What?

North Carolina 38 – Pitt 35

Pitt’s ACC title hopes took a big hit following a sixth consecutive loss to North Carolina on Saturday. The Tar Heels came into the game 0-2 with a backup quarterback and a plethora of suspensions. But a week after shutting down Georgia Tech and injecting some back life into the fan base, the Panthers squandered a chance to go 2-0 in the ACC by allowing UNC to rack up 486 yards of offense and 38 points in what ended up being just another variation of the same story.

Dan Wolken: Narduzzi extension “textbook example of how not to be an athletic director”

Pitt clocks in at #69 on ESPN’s FPI rankings, three spots ahead of the last ranked ACC team, Louisville.

Pitt’s falls to 75th in the S&P+ rankings, down 13 spots from the previous week. The rankings have Pitt’s offense at 40th, defense at 94th and special teams at 115th.

Pitt’s next opponent? A road date with “National Champion” Central Florida, which is up to #13 in the country.

ACC Beat

Other than Clemson–and maybe Miami–the ACC looks like it’s having an off year. However, Duke is ranked #22 in the latest AP Poll and Syracuse and North Carolina State are hovering near the Top 25. Previously ranked Boston College got blown out by 0-3 Purdue and Virginia Tech lost to Old Dominion, a team that started their football program less than a decade ago, and dismissed star DE Trevon Hill.

  • Florida State 37 – Northern Illinois 19
  • Clemson 49 – Georgia Tech 21
  • Miami 31 – FIU 17
  • Duke 55 – NC Central 13
  • Syracuse 51 – UConn 21
  • NC State 37 – Marshall 20
  • Virginia 27 – Louisville 3
  • Old Dominion 49 – Virginia Tech 35
