Florida International Golden Panthers (0-3) vs. Pittsburgh Panthers (1-2)

Saturday, October 2nd, 3:30 PM EST

Line: Pittsburgh -19 1/2

The Pittsburgh Panthers are coming off a tough loss to the Miami Hurricanes, where they lost 31-3. Pitt’s quarterback, Tino Sunseri had a poor passing game, going only 8/15 for a sad 61 yards. The team’s running back, Dion Lewis has yet to show any signs of who he was last year. So far the running back has only rushed for 143 yards and two touchdowns. Instead, the team is looking at their sophomore back, Ray Graham who’s already ran for 215 yards and two touchdowns in only 23 carries.

Keys to the Games

* Florida International (FIU) is having a weak season this year. They’ve suffered losses in all three of their games and have yet to show any signs of promise. One of their brightest spots belongs in their junior receiver T.Y. Hilton. The short 5’10’’ receiver caught seven passes for 71 yards in his last game, and also had an amusing 56-yard kick return against Maryland. He leads his team with 16 receptions for 168 yards this season.

* Ray Graham has made the most of his limited touches this season. The sophomore running back didn’t get any touches in the first game of the season, but broke off for 115 yards in his second game. In his third game, he was given 14 touches for 100 yards. He’ll be sure to see the ball more in this easy contest against FIU, especially if Lewis continues his struggles.

* Pittsburgh appeared to be a team to be reckoned with when they roughed up Miami’s QB, Jacory Harris last weekend. But they couldn’t get it together after halftime to have a chance at a win. They will need to keep an eye on FIU’s quarterback, Wesley Carroll. The quarterback had a chance to let loose last weekend, completing 35 out of his 58 passes for 355 yards, two picks and two touchdowns.

This will be a good game for Pittsburgh to experiment with their suddenly deep running game. Quarterback, Tino Sunseri will look to find his groove in this game also, after a bad performance the last week. This will be a loud and dominating win for Pittsburgh, who’s looking to regain confidence after their loss to the Hurricanes.
