Tonight, Pitt takes on Akron in the team's first road game of the season. With the loss to the Zips in 2014 coupled with the season-ending injury to star running backand a close win against FCS Youngstown State in the opener, you shouldn't be reminded that this could be a difficult test for the Panthers.
Pitt is at least boosted by the return of All-candidate wide receiver and defensive linemen and Darryl Render. The Panthers also look to have a solid running game behind Conner with Qadree Ollison's big debut last week and primary backup , if healthy. True freshman four-star recruit Darrin Hall will also be in the mix. Still, with the trouble the team had at home against Youngstown State last Saturday, no opponent can be looked past.
