Pitt has won the last two meetings with West Virginia (7-3, 3-2), including a 13-9 victory in Morgantown in 2007, which kept the then-No. 2 Mountaineers from playing for the national title. Coach Dave Wannstedt acknowledges the Panthers’ 2007 win over the Mountaineers as a turning point for his program. Pittsburgh had come into that game 4-7. In the two years since, the Panthers have gone 18-5, and they have been a consistent presence in the Top 25 this season.

West Virginia, meanwhile, saw coach Rich Rodriguez leave two weeks after that upset defeat. The Mountaineers went 9-4 under Bill Stewart last season and have spent only two weeks in the rankings this season.This is the first time since 2003 that the teams have met with the Panthers in the Top 25 and the Mountaineers unranked.

West Virginia failed in a comeback attempt of its own in a 24-21 loss to Cincinnati on Nov. 13. The Mountaineers scored on Jarrett Brown’s 3-yard touchdown pass to Bradley Starks with 39 seconds remaining, but they were out of timeouts when the Bearcats recovered the onside kick. Friday is West Virginia’s final home game. It’s trying to go undefeated in Morgantown for the first time since 1993.

 I think both defenses will step up and stop the run, which, in my eyes, favors Pitt. A low scoring field position battle with Pitt winning a close one.  Take Pitt on the road.

Ranked #1 in the country for free college football picks.
