Outside of the top three teams in the Big East, the rest of this conference is in shambles. At the moment, no one aside from the Louisville Cardinals, Cincinnati Bearcats, and Rutgers Scarlet Knights will be going bowling, and about the only hope for that to change is if Pittsburgh can beat Connecticut on Friday night. Unfortunately for the conference, we just don’t see that happening. The Panthers are coming off of a tremendous emotional letdown, as they put absolutely everything that they had into the game at the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. They came up short in that one, and they are now going to have to pick up the pieces having blown a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter and then having blown a shot to win it in overtime just by simply kicking a short field goal. Instead, it’s back to the drawing board, and on just four days of rest with two days to travel, the Panthers have to get ready to go back on the road to take on an inferior opponent. It just doesn’t bode well for U-Pitt in this one.
Pittsburgh @ Connecticut Pick: Connecticut +3
Pittsburgh @ Connecticut Score Prediction: Connecticut 21 – Pittsburgh 17
