(Don’t) Bet the Farm: Cardiac Hill’s picks for Pitt vs. Tennessee

Syndication: The Knoxville News-Sentinel Brianna Paciorka/News Sentinel via Imagn Content Services, LLC

Pitt will head down to Neyland Stadium in Knoxville on Saturday to take on Tennessee in the Johnny Majors Classic. The game will be the first meeting between the Panthers and the Volunteers since 1983, and it will mark just the third time that the two teams have met on the gridiron. Pitt prevailed in both of the previous matchups and is expected to win again as a three-point favorite over Tennessee. However, the game is expected to be another close one between Pat Narduzzi and Josh Heupel, who dueled to a 35-34 outcome in Pitt’s favor when Heupel coached UCF back in 2019.

Once again, the entire Cardiac Hill staff sees Pitt as the likely victor on Saturday after all eight staff members correctly picked Pitt to beat UMass in Week 1.

Last season, Anson and JD predicted nine of Pitt’s 11 games correctly, topping the rest of the staff. Will they be able to repeat that feat in 2021? Stay tuned to find out.
