What to Know
The Pittsburgh Panthers will stay at home another week and welcome the NC State Wolfpack at noon ET Oct. 3 at Heinz Field. Pitt is coming into the contest with an unblemished 3-0 record.
On Saturday, the Panthers narrowly escaped with a win as the team sidled past the Louisville Cardinals 23-20. Having forecasted a close victory for Pitt, the oddsmakers were right on the money. No one had a standout game offensively for Pitt, but they got scores from WR Taysir Mack and WR Jordan Addison.
Special teams collected 11 points for Pitt. K Alex Kessman booted in three field goals, the longest a 45-yarder in the first quarter, which ultimately accounted for the difference in the game.
Meanwhile, NC State has to be hurting after a devastating 45-24 defeat at the hands of the Virginia Tech Hokies on Saturday. The Wolfpacks were down 37-17 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Like the Panthers, NC State didn’t have any clear offensive standouts, but they got scores from a handful of players including QB Devin Leary, RB Jordan Houston, and RB Ricky Person Jr..
Pittsburgh’s win lifted them to 3-0 while NC State’s loss dropped them down to 1-1. We’ll see if Pitt’s success rolls on or if NC State is able to steal their positive momentum.
