Locked On Pitt: Pitt Downs West Virginia 38-31 in the Backyard Brawl



Pitt and Kedon Slovis came out on top against West Virginia in what may be the game of the year in a 38-31 thriller for the Backyard Brawl. What does this game tell us about Pitt in particular? And how does this game illustrate just why the Backyard Brawl is so special?

Then, we have to talk about Kedon Slovis and Frank Cignetti. What are the ups and downs throughout the game? However, you should not panic about the offense in spite of some struggles. What flashes and positives did Pitt show on offense that can carry them through?

Lastly, we break down a tough performance by the Pitt defense. Is the defense overrated or were they just Week 1 jitters? What can be taken away from the performance of some of the young players that stepped into roles for Pitt defensively?

Anyone else notice the NEW Freshman Punter can kick it with either foot. His first Attempt was a weird snap and went to his left and Left footed it. The rest of the night he whacked it with his right.

Yes, just thought he was kicking away from pressure. Australian Rules Football players kick with either foot.
