The Virginia Cavaliers and the Pittsburgh Panthers will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Heinz Field.

ABOUT VIRGINIA (5-2, 2-1 ACC): For the season, Benkert has completed 62.3 percent of his passes for 1,806 yards with 15 TDs and four interceptions. Jordan Ellis leads the team with 602 yards rushing while Olamide Zaccheaus provides a dual threat with 49 catches for 505 yards and 142 yards rushing on 16 attempts from his receiver position. The defense yields just 341 yards per game and ranks third in the ACC with nine interceptions – three by freshman safety Brenton Nelson.

ABOUT PITTSBURGH (3-5, 1-3): Hall entered the game with 108 yards on 31 carries, prompting coach Pat Narduzzi to say, “Right now, he’s the guy. It’s his job. I think he’s got a lot of confidence right now.” Ben DiNucci started his second straight game under center and completed 8-of-18 passes for 149 yards. Benkert has a great chance for a bounce-back game, as the Panthers rank 13th in the ACC in pass yards allowed (270.4) and are last in third-down conversions (41.1 percent).

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Panthers as 1-point favorites versus the Cavaliers, while the game’s total is sitting at 49 according to Mybookie.agblacklogo-132x42

With a chance last week to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2011, Virginia fell behind by 24 points early in the second quarter en route to a 41-10 thumping against a struggling Boston College squad. The Cavaliers will try once again this Saturday when they travel to Heinz Field for an ACC Coastal clash against a Pittsburgh team that found a running attack for the first time all season last week against Duke.

The Eagles totaled 512 yards and converted 10-of-19 on third down as well as 2-of-3 on fourth down while Virginia quarterback Kurt Benkert was battered all day long and threw for a season-low 126 yards before departing in the fourth quarter. “I think (the loss) shows that we can’t just show up and expect to win, that it’s not just going to be handed to us. We have to go take it,” Benkert told reporters after the game. “These teams prepare just like we prepare, and no game in the ACC is going to be easy.” The Panthers had dropped five of six until reserve Darrin Hall broke out for 254 yards on 25 carries and three touchdowns, including runs of 79 and 92 yards – the longest in school history – that helped turn a 10-point, third-quarter deficit into a 24-17 victory. Despite the Panthers’ 336-yard outburst on 57 attempts last weekend, Pitt still enters this game averaging only 141.5 yards rushing per game and 3.8 yards per carry.

Pittsburgh was a 24-17 winner in its last match on the road against Blue Devils. They covered the +9-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 41 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

Virginia lost its last outing, a 41-10 result against Eagles on October 21. Virginia failed to cover in that game as a -6.5-point favorite, while the 51 combined points took the game OVER the total.
