Over at Heinz Field on Friday, the Miami Hurricanes and the Pittsburgh Panthers will be meeting up in college football action.
The Hurricanes are cruising right now at 10-0, with wins over North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Notre Dame and Virginia in just their last four. In that Virginia game, Hurricanes QB Malik Rosier put up 210 yards with three TDs and two picks.
On the season so far, Rosier has 2620 yards with 23 TDs and nine picks, while Travis Homer leads Miami’s rush on 849 yards and seven TDs. Braxton Berrios is the top Hurricanes receiver with his 41 catches for 522 yards and eight TDs.
Over on the Panthers’ side, they’re sitting at 4-7 on the season so far. Pittsburgh had two wins over Duke and Virginia in succession, but have lost their last two to North Carolina and Virginia Tech. In that VT game, Pittsburgh QB Kenny Pickett put up 242 yards with an INT.
So far this year, Pickett has 316 yards, zero scores and the one pick, while Darrin Hall is the top Panthers rusher on 118 carries, 598 yards and nine TDs. Jester Weah is tops in receiving for Pittsburgh on 35 catches for 618 yards and four touchdowns.
The Hurricanes are 4-0 ATS in their last five Friday games and 8-1 ATS in their last nine games in November. Miami is also 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and 1-4 ATS in their last five conference games.
Meanwhile, Pittsburgh is 5-2-1 ATS versus a team with a winning record and 7-19 ATS in their last 26 home games. The Panthers are also 1-4-1 ATS in their last six Friday games and the under is 6-1-1 in their last eight games overall.
Miami has been quite impressive over this recent stretch of games, and after a brief lull their offense seems to be back on point with the defense. The Hurricanes have allowed more than 20 points just twice in their last eight games, and they’ve put up 85 points in their last two. I think Miami will win this one, obviously, but they may get caught looking past the Panthers and on to Clemson. I like Pittsburgh to get in there and cover.
