The Jacksonville Dolphins are off to an OK start through 3 games, and they hung around with Xavier at times, which is encouraging. The Pittsburgh Panthers have a history of taking their foot off the gas and can be sloppy at times in terms of bizarre results. However, Pitt looks to have a pep in its step offensively through 3 games, regardless of what you think of the competition. This Pitt team has a bit of a different feel. This line isn't super crazy. Give me Pitt and the chalk.
