Pittsburgh Panthers College Football Betting

It is amazing how history gets revised and that people can adamantly deny guarantees they made that didn’t pan out. Take the case of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and head coach Geoff Collins. At the end of the 2018 season, Georgia Tech fans had tired of then-head coach Paul Johnson and his option offense. Johnson had a cantankerous personality that further annoyed the faithful. On the other hand, Johnson was a winner. He went 82-61, posted two double-digit win seasons, and won an ACC championship. Tech went to bowls in nine of his 11 campaigns. “Goof” Collins is 10-29 in his tenure. The same people that celebrated the coaching change now miss Paul Johnson.

Pittsburgh Panthers Weekly Matchup

On Saturday, October 1, 2022, the Pitt Panthers of the Atlantic Coast Conference will host the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets of the Atlantic Coast Conference. Kickoff time at Acrisure Stadium is 8 p.m. ET, with television coverage on ACC Network.

Georgia Tech is an impossible sell in this matchup against the defending ACC champions. Pitt is not the same team as last year. But the Panthers are still good enough, especially against a bad and dispirited Georgia Tech program stuck in a lost season. Further, Pitt has plenty to play for in the early stages of the ACC schedule. Sharps will be hard-pressed to take the Yellow Jackets. But the price on the Panthers is not low. Thus, value is difficult to evaluate.

Last game, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets lost 27-10 against the UCF Knights as 21-point road dogs. The game went under the total of 56.5. Georgia Tech has a record of 1-3 straight up, 1-3 against the spread, and 0-4 over/under the total. Georgia Tech ranks 112th for total offense, 110th for passing, 103rd for rushing, and 127th for scoring.

Defensively they rank 102nd overall, 43rd against the pass, 121st against the rush, and 97th for points allowed. Also, Georgia Tech ranks 41st for fewest turnovers lost and 21st for takeaways.

On a day when senior quarterback John Rhys Plumlee completed just eight passes, Central Florida scored on a blocked punt and rode four Colton Boomer field goals to win over the Ramblin Wreck on Saturday. Plumlee did not complete a pass in the first quarter and finished 8 of 16 for 49 yards with an interception and two sacks. He carried 16 times for 100 yards to lead the Knights' ground game. RJ Harvey and Isaiah Bowser combined for 143 yards on 31 carries, and the Knights averaged 5.1 yards per rush.

Jeff Sims was 21 of 32 passing for 314 yards and a touchdown for Georgia Tech. He was sacked four times. Georgia Tech lost its ninth straight game against an FBS opponent but outgained UCF, 452 yards to 333. Eight penalties, some of them prolonging UCF drives, were critical, and linebacker Charlie Thomas was disqualified for targeting during UCF's fourth-quarter touchdown drive.

Tailback Israel Abanikanda rushed for four touchdowns, and quarterback Kedon Slovis was solid in his return from injury as No. 24 Pittsburgh beat FCS Rhode Island on Saturday. The Panthers have been searching for a top-tier running game since 2018.

So far, Abanikanda has emerged in a big way. The Panthers rushed for 272 yards and scored at least 30 points for the ninth time in 11 games. Slovis had plenty of help on the ground from Abanikanda, who had 19 carries for 177 yards. The four touchdowns tied for second-most in program history.
