PITTSBURGH — Pitt (7-4, 4-3 ACC) fell 28-0 in a must-win against Virginia Tech on Saturday for them to have any chance at the ACC Coastal Division title.
The Panthers were back on the practice field at UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on Tuesday morning as they prepare for their final home game of the season on Saturday, Nov. 30 at 3:30 p.m. against Boston College (5-6, 3-4).
Pitt’s offensive struggles have been evident in all four of their losses this season. On Tuesday, quarterback Kenny Pickett was taking plenty of reps with his receivers. His leading target Maurice Ffrench is still being held out with a broken jaw but is questionable against the Eagles on Senior Day.
The Panthers only had 15 rushes from their running backs against Virginia Tech. A balanced offensive attack for Pitt will be key against a Boston College team that likes to run and dominate the possession game.
The last two times Pitt and Boston College have faced off at Heinz Field the game was decided in overtime by Pitt field goals. The only meeting between the two schools since Pitt joined the ACC was in 2014 at BC when the Panthers won 30-20.
