I wrote on Monday that Pitt had a couple of more chances at a statement win for this season. With games against Duke and Louisville, the Panthers have a couple of tough tasks this week.
The saving grace for the team, perhaps, is that both games are at home. Pitt should be the underdog for both contests, but you feel like they have a little more of a fighting chance at The Pete, where they are 14-3 on the year.
Pitt has already dropped a game to Louisville and, well, it was pretty ugly. Both, the Cardinals and Blue Devils, however, have lost to teams that Pitt has beaten this season - Louisville lost to Notre Dame while Duke fell to Syracuse. Given a great effort by the Panthers in either game, they will have a chance to pull of the upset.
What do you think about Pitt's chances this week against both? Weigh in using the poll below.
