What there is to know
The Pittsburgh Panthers and Massachusetts Minutemen meet at 4 p.m. ET on September 4 at Heinz Field to kick off their 2021 season. Pitt was on the positive side of .500 (6-5) last season and is hoping to pitch another year. more successful. Meanwhile, back after a tough 0-4 year, UMass aims to prove the past doesn’t define them.
A few defensive stats from last season to watch out for: The Panthers were the best in the country in sacks, ending the 2020 season with 46. Less than enviable, the Minutemen ranked the worst in the country in rushing yards allowed per game the last season, where the team gave up 273.5 on average. The good news for UMass, of course, is that these forces working against them might not continue into the new season.
Pitt is the favorite in this one, with an expected margin of victory of 38 points (!). It would take nothing less than a miracle for UMass to secure a victory, but maybe they can at least stop Pitt from covering the gap.
