Pitt Falls to 24 in AP Poll; Ranked by Coaches for 1st Time

Pitt dropped three spots in the AP Top 25 on Sunday after improving to 3-0 by beating Louisville, but is ranked for the first time this season in the USA Today coaches poll.

The Panthers are ranked No. 24 in the AP poll after being No. 21 a week ago. They fell despite winning over a ranked Louisville team because the AP allowed voters to rank teams in the Big Ten and Pac-12 this week after those conferences agreed to return to play later this fall.

Pitt is ranked No. 25 in the coaches poll, the first time they have been ranked in that poll this season.

Inserted into the AP poll ahead of the Panthers were No. 6 Ohio State, No. 10 Penn State, No. 14 Oregon, No. 19 Wisconsin and No. 23 Michigan.

The ACC has five ranked teams, led by No. 1 Clemson and followed by No. 5 Notre Dame, No. 8 Miami, No. 12 North Carolina and the Panthers. Virginia Tech received the most votes of any unranked team. Virginia and Louisville also received votes.

The coaches have North Carolina at No. 11 and Virginia Tech at No. 23.

Pitt is ranked for three straight weeks for the first time since 2009, when the Panthers were ranked for six straight weeks to finish the season.

Texas at number 9 in the country is an absolute joke of jokes. They gave up 56 points to Texas Tech that barely managed to survive a Houston Baptist team. Cincinnati at 15 is also a joke. Pitt bested Austin Peay 55-0 and Cincinnati only beat the same opponent by around 30 points. Cincinnati also barely topped an Army team while Pitt topped Louisville. Someone ranking these teams needs to put down the bong. Drink some coffee and sober up!

Until the Offense can start putting up 30 pts on a reg basis I’m afraid this is what going to happen. A consistent TE is needed. And KP needs to play BETTER. Every time they get drive inside the 30 he starts getting stupid and plays the same. They need to put up 30 pts on their own. Some of this is on Whipple too for his clownish play calling gets them in trouble so does their QB. Don’t worry about the Rankings… Just Win! You not going to put up 30 on everyone. But they should have as well… Read more »
