Pitt gets its second night game of the year on Saturday, facing Old Dominion on Saturday. Most of us realize this should be a win for Pitt but in college football, there are no guarantees, boys and girls. The Panthers face a team making a transition to the FBS level, the Monarchs sport a potent offense. If that weren't enough, Pitt also comes in a bit banged up with injuries to James Conner and Devin Street.
Still, no excuses here, folks. This is a game Pitt needs to win. Playing at home against a weaker opponent, the Panthers need to take care of business.
