What can I say? It was another debacle by the Pitt football team who are now 0-2. The offense was not good, but once again the defense was disastrous giving up 461 yards, including 257 yards on the ground. The Bearcats averaged an amazing 8.6 yards a carry.
On offense, Tino Sunseri was his usual mediocre self though his numbers look inflated because of garbage time stats. On the night, he completed 25 of 38 passes for 285 yards. He was also sacked 5 times and threw an interception in the end zone.
Ray Graham led Pitt with 102 yards on 18 carries, a 5.7 average. Rushel Shell got his first carries and ended up with 24 yards on 7 carries while Isaac Bennett had 24 yards on 5 carries. Both Mike Shanahan and Devin Street led all receivers with 5 catches, for 59 and 54 yards respectively. Hubie Graham, who many, including me, thought would have a big season caught just one pass for 8 yards.
The Panthers are now 0-2 and next host highly ranked Virginia Tech on September 15th.
