Media Predictions for the 2021 Pitt Football Season



The college football season officially kickoffs locally this weekend as Pitt, West Virginia and Penn State are all in action.

All three teams have expectations entering the 2021 season as they have the benefit of being led by senior quarterbacks: Kenny Pickett, Jarret Doege and Sean Clifford.

The question is how successful of a season will it be for these teams?

OL I get, but CBs? Not an area of concern at all…

I think our CB’s are good but put on islands way too much.

Less than 10 wins this year is an absolute failure

I think this is Pitt’s best team in a decade however the schedule is tough. I think 9 wins and the coastal would be great. I have a hard time seeing how they could get to 11 wins but I’m hoping so. That would be so damn fun.
