What’s Going To Happen

It’s way too easy to simply assume that the Power Five team is going to come in and crush the mediocre MAC team that finished last in its division …

So go ahead and do it.

Don’t look too much into Pitt’s ten-point win over Ohio or the 17-14 win over Delaware earlier in the year, and don’t get too caught up into the inability to beat anyone this year by more than ten.

Eastern Michigan isn’t awful, but it’s more plucky than talented. It doesn’t have the lines to hold up against what the Panthers will bring – especially the pass rush – and it’ll show in the second half.

This won’t be a total wipeout – Pitt just doesn’t do that – but the game will be in the ACC’s control in the third quarter.
