After a tough non-conference schedule that saw the Panthers drop three games, the Panthers are right back in form after winning their first two conference games in impressive fashion.
The biggest key to the turn around for Pitt has been the offense, which is clicking at the moment. Quarterback Tino Sunseri is a big reason for that—his seven touchdown passes and only one interception in the past two weeks have fueled the Panthers' revival.
