The 3-3 Pittsburgh Panthers will look to halt a three-game SU losing skid and stay in the hunt in the ACC Coastal race when they take on division rival Virginia Tech on Thursday night at Heinz Field. The Panthers opened the season with three SU wins but have struggled to generate offense, losing twice as home favorites, with the total going UNDER in each of their losses.
Virginia Tech will try to build on a strong defensive performance in their 34-17 win over North Carolina two weeks ago. The 4-2 Hokies held UNC to just 323 yards while forcing three turnovers in their second consecutive SU win, but have struggled in recent visits to Pittsburgh, going 1-4 SU and ATS in their last five games there.
