It was a team effort to beat Western Michigan Saturday night at Waldo Stadium, but Pat Narduzzi was proud of the way his team embodied the oft-preached ‘next man up’ mentality.
Nate Yarnell stepped in for his first college football action, Pitt weathered some prior and in-game injuries, Israel Abanikanda pieced together his second straight 100-yard performance and the secondary shut down Western Michigan’s Jack Salopek. So, who played where?
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 65 offensive snaps and 49 defensive snaps Saturday against Western Michigan. A “**” designation shows that a player started against Tennessee.
