Against the Odds: Pitt heads to Sun Bowl as an underdog to Stanford

NCAA Football: ACC Championship-Clemson vs Pittsburgh Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Pitt’s football team faces Stanford in the Sun Bowl on New Year’s Eve. While the Panthers are capable of winning, that’s not how Vegas sees things.

Currently, the Panthers are a 5 12 to 6-point underdog to the Cardinal. And while that’s down from the seven points Pitt was getting when the line opened, Stanford is the clear favorite here, even without their starting running back Bryce Love, who is sitting out the game to prepare for the NFL Draft.
