Locked On Pitt: Nate Yarnell, Israel Abanikanda Step Up in Pitt Victory
Pitt took down Western Michigan 34-13 in a ugly game where freshman quarterback Nate Yarnell and running back Israel Abanikanda stepped up to lead the Panthers to victory. How much did Yarnell prove about his talent and ability in the victory? Is Abanikanda proving himself to be a lead running back in the future?
As the Panthers look towards Rhode Island, should Yarnell get another start moving forward? How can Pitt evaluate what they have offensively with so many injuries? Should there be a concern with the offensive line or are they stepping up in a big way?
Finally, Pitt is dealing with multiple injuries on the offensive line, defensive line, and to their quarterbacks. How do the injuries project for the start of ACC play? Who needs to step up to replace those that will be out for an extended period of time?
