The Rice’s strength lies in their 3-4 defensive system which is unique in the college football scene. Outside linebacker Brian Womac is playing a distinctive game as a pass rusher for the Owls and can create troubles for the Pitts’ offense.
The Owls offense is lead by two quarterbacks: Sam Glaesmann and Jackson Tyner, both of whom have plenty of playing experience.
Pitt’s offense crumbled against Georgia Tech last Saturday, collecting just 78 yards for a touchdown in the first half and continued their bad through the second as well.
The offensive line features running backs big names like Qadree Ollison and Chawntez but both of them have yet to reestablish the ground game for the Panthers.
However, the Pitt defense will be stronger than before as Jordan Whitehead and Damar Hamlin will becak in the lineup on Saturday against the Owls. With wide receivers Jester Weah and Quadree Henderson seemingly in good form for the Panthers, the question of failure will boil down to the Pitts offense only.
