The Panthers are on a short week this week as they face the North Carolina Tar Heels tonight after playing Syracuse on the road this past Saturday. The Tar Heels also had a game Saturday, defeating Virginia, but they were at least afforded the slight benefit of playing at home. That said, the Panthers will be at Heinz Field for this one and that helps to make up for the road trip on Saturday.
The game, as we've said this week, will be telling for both teams. I'm still not convinced how much we can take away after tonight since both teams have still been without a statement win to this point, but whoever comes away with a win will have a leg up in the Coastal Division race.
The game starts at 7:00 p.m. tonight and join us here to comment live if you're not heading down to Heinz Field. In the meantime, give us your pregame picks and predictions below in the comments section.
