ATLANTA — The Pittsburgh Panthers will have almost everyone available on Thursday night at Bobby Dodd Stadium for the regular season finale.
Pittsburgh’s entire roster cleared the COVID-19 protocols for the trip to Atlanta ahead of the ACC finale against Georgia Tech, but the travel roster does have a couple notable omissions.
Senior safety Damar Hamlin has appeared in every game for the Panthers this season, but will not be suiting up for Pitt against the Yellow Jackets. Hamlin entered Thursday night with two interceptions on the season and is coming off a 10-tackle performance against No. 3 Clemson last time out. Defensive tackle Keyshon Camp is also not on the travel roster. The senior has played in six games for Pitt this season, but only once away from Heinz Field.
Starting quarterback Kenny Pickett took snaps during warm-ups, and will appear in his 39th game as a collegiate player tonight.
Four freshmen will also be making a homecoming tonight with the return to Georgia. Macon, Ga. native Jaylon Barden caught his first career touchdown on Nov. 21 in Pitt’s win over Virginia Tech, and he will be joined by Paris Brown from Powder Springs, Ga., Hunter Sellers from Tryone, Ga. and Atlanta’s Rashad Battle. All four players were on the field during warm-ups.
