While Pitt’s passing game is performing well, the same can’t be said for its running game. Whether it’s lack of opportunities, poor run blocking, lack of rhythm, or something else, the bottom line is Pitt’s lack of running game is an issue.
So far this season, the Panthers’ leading rusher is A.J. Davis with 119 yards on 29 carries. The team as a whole is only averaging 2.8 yards per carry and have averaged just 87.33 total yards on the ground per game.
For the first time in a while, the Panthers don’t have a featured back, which is something that has to change if they’re going to have a balanced offense.
Here’s our question, who should Pat Narduzzi settle on as Pitt’s featured back instead of rotating 3-4 players?
