Pitt leaves one must-win situation and heads into another this weekend against Temple. Can Pitt lose this game and still get to a bowl game? Technically, yes. But with three road games left, including one against Notre Dame, the Panthers would be hard-pressed to do so. Pitt really needs to come up with a win against the Owls if they're going to get to the postseason.
The Panthers should have a good chance to win this one, but I don't expect Temple to lay down for them. The Owls have Big East wins over South Florida and UConn while leading Rutgers 10-0 at halftime of their game this past weekend at home.
