Die-Hards: FCS Opponent Allows Pitt to Feature Heavy Depth



Pitt ended its non-conference slate with a 45-24 win over Rhode Island Saturday, entering ACC play against Georgia Tech this week with a 3-1 record.

It was a game in which Pitt was able to use 24 players on offense and 27 players on defense, allowing some underclassmen — and even true freshmen — to take some increased snaps.

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 70 offensive snaps and 55 defensive snaps Saturday against Rhode Island. A “**” designation shows that a player started against Rhode Island.
