Virginia Tech will be too much for the Panthers
This isn't exactly who Pittsburgh wants to face trying to rebound off two dismal games.
The Hokies have the type of offense that will cause problems for an inexperienced Panthers front seven. Junior quarterback Logan Thomas is a dual-threat passer going up against a defense barely capable of defending the pass.
Thomas tossed for 230 yards and two scores in the opener against Georgia Tech while rushing for 40 yards. His backfield mate, freshman running back Michael Holmes, ran for 54 yards on 13 carries against the Yellow Jackets.
Considering Pittsburgh hasn't been able to hold an opponent to under 200 yards on the ground so far, I can't imagine Virginia Tech not reaching at least 150 yards.
Thomas should have a monster game as the Panthers spend every play trying to figure out if he'll take off and run or lob one deep.
And we didn't even mention the Pittsburgh offense...
Prediction: Loss (0-3)
