The Virginia Cavaliers are really strong this season of college football. They are so far 5-2 into it. However, things aren’t quite similarly well with their opponents this game, the Pittsburgh Panthers. The Panthers are 3-5 with 1-3 in the division. However, that doesn’t mean that the Panthers don’t have a solid chance against the Cavaliers.
The Virginia Cavaliers are scoring an average of 26.1 points per game. They are allowing 23.0 points per game so far. These stats might not be spectacular, but they are inspiring. The Cavaliers have what it takes to be a dominating force in college football this season.
Kurt Benkert leads the team in passing yards with 1,806 yards along with 15 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. As for rushing yards, the team leader is Jordan Ellis. He leads the team with 602 yards on 142 carries along with 5 touchdowns. Olamide Zaccheaus leads the team in receiving yards. He has 49 receptions, 505 yards, and 4 touchdowns.
Overall, the team is performing significantly better than their opponents for this game. In fact, their four-game win streak was only stopped recently in their 34-17 loss against the Indiana Hoosiers.
The Pittsburgh Panthers are netting an average of 23.4 points per game while allowing for 29.6. This is surely alarming. Allowing close to 30 points per game is not a healthy thing for any team. They will need to turn their defense game up a notch if they want to have a comfortable go at a victory against the Virginia Cavaliers.
The chances of UVA winning the game against the Pittsburgh team are tough. The Panthers are a good team and they have a good scope at defeating the Cavaliers if they make an early push in the scores.
