The Miami Hurricanes and Pitt Panthers face off on Saturday in an ACC showdown at Heinz Field. When these two teams faced off in October of 2020, it was Miami that came away with the 31-19 victory. 

The Miami Hurricanes are having another down season sitting with a 3-4 record and they are a team that could see some big changes after this season. Even with all the struggles, the Hurricanes came away with a big victory against NC State 31-30 in the last game. Quarterback Tyler Van Dyke had a big game throwing for 325 yards and four touchdowns. The Hurricanes are averaging 32.1 points while the defense is giving up 30 points per game. Van Dyke has improved every week under center and it seems he might maybe be turning the corner. Van Dyke has thrown for 1,062 yards, nine touchdowns, and three interceptions. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Pitt Panthers who sit with a 6-1 record but their loss was a bad one against Western Michigan. The Panthers last game was another impressive victory over the Clemson Tigers 27-17. Pitt is averaging 45.3 points per game which is 4th best in all of the country. The defense has also been really good giving up only 19.6 points per game which is 26th in football. Kenny Pickett is having a big season throwing for 2,236 yards, 23 touchdowns, and one interception. If Pitt wants to win this game it’s all going to be about the offense being impressive in this game.

Miami is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games overall. Pitt is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall. The home team is 4-1 in the last five meetings. The under is 5-1 in the last six meetings in Pittsburgh. 

Van Dyke looked good in the last game, but he is going to have issues against this Pitt defense. Look for Pickett to fling the ball all around against the Hurricanes defense, and this game is going to get ugly early. Back Pittsburgh to win this game and cover the spread.
