(Don't) Bet the Farm: Pitt vs Duke predictions

Cardiac Hill staff gives their predictions for Pitt's penultimate home game

Joshua S. Kelly-USA TODAY Sports

Whew, glad we were all so wrong last week. I did say weird things can happen on the road against a top 5 team.

After the Clemson win, the season has gone from looking like a possible disappointment with a likely 7-5 finish, to what could be a very promising 8-4 against what's been a much tougher schedule than last year. Duke pulled an upset of their own last week against UNC, and should come in to Heinz to pull the upset themselves. While Pitt has had some injuries, especially on the defensive side, I feel pretty good about Pitt's chance in this game. At this point, the pass defense is what it is, and it's simply a question of if Pitt's offense can put up more points than the opponent.

The big key here is the players not suffering an emotional let down after last week's extremely emotional and dramatic win. That's usually a task that falls to the coaches, and hopefully Narduzzi has taken care of that.

Pitt's riding high on momentum, and to continue that going into the bowl game would do wonders for the program.

Corey - Pitt (9-1)

JD - Pitt (8-2)

Jim - Pitt (7-3)

Anson - Pitt (6-4)

Chris - Pitt (6-4)

Aron - Pitt (5-5)

Stephen - Pitt (5-5)
