PITTSBURGH — Pitt finally got the monkey off their back against North Carolina on Thursday night with a 34-27 overtime win at Heinz Field.
The Panthers improved to (7-3, 4-2 ACC), which keeps them tied for second place in the Coastal division, a half-game behind first-place Virginia (7-3, 5-2).
Pitt was back on the practice field at UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on a brisk Tuesday morning as they prepare to travel to Virginia Tech (7-3, 4-2) on Saturday, Nov. 23. The Hokies have won four consecutive ACC games.
Pitt relied on their offense and the leadership of quarterback Kenny Pickett against UNC. Head coach Pat Narduzzi said on Monday that he was “disappointed” in the way that his defense played.
Panther running back Todd Sibley was not listed on Pitt’s depth-chart that was released on Monday. However, Sibley was dressed and participating in some drills at Tuesday’s practice. Wide receiver Maurice Ffrench is still being held out with a broken jaw but is questionable against Virginia Tech.
