Pitt Postgame Show: Pitt on Cusp of Coastal Division Crown After Hanging on for North Carolina Win
It may not have happened as many expected it to, but Pitt earned a 30-23 overtime win over North Carolina nonetheless.
Mike Asti welcomes Mitchell Northam on Pittsburgh Sports Live to try to make sense of what changed in the second half, discuss what Pitt did, especially defensively to contain Sam Howell and a high-powered Tar Hell offense and talk about what’s now in front of the Panthers the rest of the season.
