With the regular season now complete, there was one more set of polls due to come out before postseason action. The Panthers had been No. 24 in the rankings and got a slight bump up this week to No. 23.

The move up came after the Panthers topped Duke, 28-9.

Pitt has this weekend off then heads to the ACC Tournament where wrestlers will be hoping to qualify for the NCAA Tournament.

The Panthers have had a pretty tumultuous year. In addition to some injuries, the team lost its head coach in the middle of the year and finished only 2-3 in conference. All things considered, it was nice to see them be able to stick in the Top 25 for the last regular season poll
