Pitt, UConn hook up
Friday night's college football game is a Big East matchup between the Pitt Panthers and UConn Huskies meet up under the bright lights. Pittsburgh is coming off that heartbreaking loss in triple-OT to undefeated Notre Dame in a game the Panthers know they should have had numerous times. They blew a two-score lead in the 4th (kick-started by a brutal PI call on 4th down for Notre Dame's first of two scores) and then missed a game-winning FG in the 2nd overtime. Losing that way on the big stage is more demoralizing than many can imagine, yet Pitt has to regroup and play a UConn team that is hungry to stop their own losing ways.

The Huskies are listed as 3-point dogs for this contest and after failing to score more than 14 points in any of their past four, it's no surprise to see the majority of the action going Pitt's way. However, while the offense struggles, UConn's defense is still pretty good as they have only allowed one opponent to put up more than 20 on them in their last five contests. It's not like they have played all bottom-feeders in that time too, losing 19-3 to a very good Rutgers team and 17-14 to Temple in OT. They are 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 November games and 13-4 ATS at home vs. a poor road team. But what may be the most important trend of this rivalry is the fact that the underdog is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings. The Huskies know this is their chance to catch a reeling team and I expect them to take full advantage of it.

Pittsburgh played a very good game last week and if it weren't for a few miscues they would have shaken up the BCS standings a fair bit. As it is now though, they have to head back out on the road and play a relatively poor team at 3-6 SU in a game they can't possibly be anywhere near as excited for as they were for Notre Dame. They are 17-5 ATS in their last 22 after a loss and to hold an edge in talent vs. UConn but this situation does nothing but hurt the Panthers.

Take the underdog Huskies in this one.
