Vincent Davis to Start at RB for Pitt vs Syracuse



Pitt has gone through training camp and the first week of the 2020 season with a five-headed monster at running back, with five players listed on the two-deep depth chart at the position.

The most seasoned of the bunch is senior A.J. Davis, and he has been listed as the starter at the position on both of the first two depth charts released by the Panthers this season.

But Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi said on Thursday that sophomore Vincent Davis showed the most in the Panthers’ season-opening win against Austin Peay and that he will get the starting nod when ACC play begins with Syracuse at Heinz Field on Saturday.

“We’ll play them all and see what they got, but Vince was the guy that showed up last week, so he’ll start,” Narduzzi said.

Vincent Davis rushed 11 times for 47 yards, both team highs, and scored two touchdowns against the Governors.

AWESOME!!! It’s about time. I thought VD separated himself last year too. AJD looks the part but goes down on arm tackles. VD has the moves of a scat back and the heart of a RB 250lbs. Just hope he holds onto the ball and blocks well for Pickett.

Welcome, FORD, to the Pitt family! H2P!!!

I agree Kevin, based off Week 1 and past performance and effort, Vincent deserves to start for now.
