The Pitt Panthers finished up the first quarter of their season with a 2-1 record, only loss coming in overtime to Tennessee. As Pitt looks to defend their conference title lets take a look at the first part of their season.
The offense had quite a bit of changes from last year. Notably was the departures of Kenny Pickett and Jordan Addison. Pickett Left for the draft and Addison left for USC via the transfer portal. Even without these two, the Pitt offense has been putting up big numbers. They average 33 points per game, and 405.3 yards per game. They also take care of the ball very well, only turning it over a total of four times in three games. From what I have seen from this Pitt offense, they are going to continue to be a very hard offense to stop.
The defense has not been bad either playing really good quality of opponents so far. To this point the defense is giving up 26 points per game, and 333.3 yards per game. The defense has forced seven turnovers to this point of the season. Of the seven turnovers, the Pitt defense has turned 2 of those into scores. They are very physical and very opportunistic. This is a very good group.
So far through the first quarter of the season this Pitt Panthers team has shown why they won the Coastal division the 2021 ACC Championship. Even with the key losses to the offense, this team is very poised to compete at an elite level. There is a big difference between being the hunter and being the hunted. If anyone is gonna defend their title so far, it’s these Feisty Pitt Panthers.
