Pitt vs. Texas Tech: Open Gamethread

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

The Panthers get their first big game of the season tonight against Texas Tech in the Legends Classic. It's a major conference opponent, but to be honest, I'm still not convinced this will be the test a lot of people think it will. I'm just not that impressed with the Red Raiders and despite a fairly young team, I still give Pitt a decent advantage in this game.

Texas Tech hasn't been all that impressive in some of their wins against some pretty bad teams and as I wrote in the brief preview this afternoon, in their only game of significance against Alabama, were beaten pretty soundly. Just too difficult to pick against Pitt here and to be honest, the game might not even be all that close IMO.
