Pitt's win over Youngstown State this past Saturday wasn't a dominant one, but a few Panthers had big performances over the weekend.
Three Pitt players were honored by the ACC for their games and won weekly conference awards.and his 207 rushing yards took home the Rookie of the Week honor. was named the Linebacker of the Week after racking up ten tackles, including three for losses and two sacks. was named Specialist of the Week for his work in the return game, mostly behind the strength of his 89-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. That score was critical as it put the Panthers back up by two scores.
The way all three played, it's easy to see them winning those awards again. Ollison will get plenty of opportunities with theinjury. Grigsby was all over the field and his athletic ability really showed up. Maddox has been touted as a good returner and taking another one to the house shouldn't surprise anyone. His opportunities may be limited with returning but he should get his shots as well since teams will likely try to avoid kicking to Boyd.
