Will Pitt's Running Game Remain A Two-Headed Monster?

Over at SB Nation Pittsburgh, I've got an article up taking a look at Pitt's running back situation:

When Pitt kicked off its 2010 campaign, there was little doubt that Dion Lewis would be the featured back.

Three games into the season? Not so much.

Lewis was a second-tier Heisman candidate at the start of this season, and for good reason. He was fresh off a 1,799 yard season as a true freshman and was the top returning rusher in all of college football. The logic (which was clearly flawed) was that he had to be better heading into this season. It seems that it was forgotten that offensive lines really do matter.

I think it's pretty clear that Pitt is going to utilize both backs from this point forward and Ray Graham has certainly earned that right - particularly in light of Lewis' struggles.
