Pitt may have lost to Tennessee over the weekend at Acrisure Stadium, but the loss — while disappointing — isn’t the end of the road for Pitt. Far from it.
Unlike the West Virginia game, rotation — especially on the defensive side of the football — was much more prevalent against Tennessee’s high-tempo offense. Some injuries on offense led to new players receiving snaps, snap counts fluctuated across the lineup and takeaways can be drawn at nearly every position.
For reference, here’s how the abbreviations work out. PASS means passing snaps, RUN means rushing snaps, RBLK means run blocking snaps, PBLK means pass blocking snaps, RDEF means rush defense snaps, PRSH means pass rushing snaps and COV means pass coverage snaps.
Pitt ran 86 offensive snaps and 79 defensive snaps Saturday against Tennessee. A “**” designation shows that a player started against Tennessee.
