What you need to know about Pittsburgh

It may have taken overtime to finish the job, but Pitt ultimately got the result they were hoping for on Thursday with a 30-23 win over the North Carolina Tar Heels. It was another big night for Pitt’s QB Kenny Pickett, who passed for three TDs and 347 yards on 44 attempts.

After three relatively average seasons as the starter at Pitt, Pickett has taken his game to another level and his in the thick of the Heisman Trophy conversation with 3,517 passing and 32 touchdowns against just four interceptions while adding 223 yards and four more scores on the ground. He should be in for another big day against a Virginia defense that has given up 1,627 yards and 134 points the last three weeks.

What you need to know about Virginia

Meanwhile, a victory for Virginia just wasn’t in the stars on Saturday as the squad never even grasped a temporary lead. They suffered a grim 28-3 defeat to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Quarterback Jay Woolfolk struggled with Brennan Armstrong out, throwing for just 196 yards and two interceptions.

However, we know that Virginia’s passing attack can be devastating if Armstrong is healthy enough to play. The second-year starter has thrown for 3,557 yards and 27 touchdowns against eight interceptions in nine games this season and he’s also mobile enough to cause issues with his legs, rushing for 271 yards and seven scores in 2021.
