#19 Miami Hurricanes @ Pittsburgh Panthers (+3.5)
Thursday, September 23rd
7:45 ET, Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, PA
Former Big East foes square off Thursday night when the Pittsburgh Panthers and Miami (FL) Hurricanes clash in Heinz Field. Miami is coming off of a tough loss to the #2 Ohio State Buckeyes that knocked them from the ranks of the unbeaten. In the 36-24 loss, the #19 Hurricanes struggled on both sides of the ball, with the defense allowing over 400 total yards and QB Terrelle Pryor running wild for 113 yards while throwing for 233. On the offensive side of the ball, QB Jacory Harris was forced into mistakes all day by the Buckeyes defense. Harris threw four picks and looked totally flustered in the pocket at times. The one bright spot for the Hurricanes was the special teams as Lamar Miller and Travis Benjamin each showed off their speed with blazing return touchdowns. Pittsburgh got a break in their second game of the season, cruising to a 38-16 win against FCS New Hampshire 12 days ago after suffering a tough overtime loss to Utah in their season opener. QB Tino Sunseri completed 24 of 34 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns against one interception in the win against the Wildcats while RB Ray Graham carried the ball nine times for 115 yards and two touchdowns. If Pittsburgh hopes to defeat the Hurricanes though, RB Dion Lewis must get on track after averaging less than 3.0 YPC over the first two games.
Prediction: Miami 31 Pittsburgh 20
