About 15 minutes from kickoff, The Pitt Panthers take on the Hurricanes of Miami who are ranked No. 19 in the AP poll. 

Can Pitt pull the Thursday night upset special?  They will need their home crowd in a frenzy, their playmaking wide-out Jon Baldwin and running back Dion Lewis to step up their game.  Lewis has stuggled this season with a 2.9 yards per carry average.  The O-line has struggled and Miami is a talented defense again. 

At a glance, it looked like Miami got dominated by OSU last week, but it was turnovers, Jacory Harris' interceptions that is,  that turned that game into a blowout.  This is an interesting match-up because it pits two teams with talent whose seasons could go either way.
