New Hampshire @ Pittsburgh
Current Records: New Hampshire 3-0; Pittsburgh 2-1
What to Know
The Pittsburgh Panthers have the luxury of staying home another week and will welcome the New Hampshire Wildcats at noon ET Sept. 25 at Heinz Field. The Panthers know how to get points on the board — the squad has finished with flashy point totals in its past three matchups — so hopefully New Hampshire likes a good challenge.
It was all tied up 27-27 at halftime, but Pitt was not quite the Western Michigan Broncos’ equal in the second half when they met last week. It was a hard-fought matchup, but Pitt had to settle for a 44-41 defeat against WMU. This was hardly the result Pitt or its fans were betting on, as they were favored by 14.5 points over the Broncos heading into this game. The losing side was boosted by QB Kenny Pickett, who passed for six TDs and 380 yards on 30 attempts in addition to picking up 49 yards on the ground. Pickett’s 67-yard touchdown toss to WR Jordan Addison in the first quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the day.
Meanwhile, the Wildcats didn’t have too much breathing room in their contest with the Lafayette Leopards last week, but they still walked away with a 19-13 win.
New Hampshire’s victory lifted them to 3-0 while Pittsburgh’s loss dropped them down to 2-1. We’ll see if New Hampshire’s success rolls on or if the Panthers are able to steal their positive momentum.
