Cardiac Hill Panther of the Game: Qadree Ollison

While you could make a solid case for a few guys, including safety Bricen Garner, I ultimately selected running back Qadree Ollison as the Panther of the game.

Overall, Ollison didn't have a monster game, but I'm not sure that anyone did, to be honest. Ollison led the running backs with 91 yards on 22 carries, averaging just over four yards per attempt. He also tallied two of Pitt's four touchdowns but what pushed him over the top for me was his team-high five catches for 35 yards. To lead the team in both rushing and receiving was a little too much to ignore.

I strongly considered Garner. He had four tackles, a pass breakup, and, most importantly, the game-clinching interception at the end. But Ollison just did a little more and was the biggest reason Pitt got out to an early lead.
