What you need to know about Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh outscored Rhode Island in every quarter of their Week 4 matchup en route to a three touchdown, convincing home victory. The Panthers begin their ACC Coastal title defense this week against the Yellow Jackets and look to open up the passing game with USC transfer QB Kedon Slovis at the helm. Slovis has dealt with injury issues thus far in 2022, missing one-and-a-half games after being hurt towards the end of the first half against Tennessee in Week 2. He has only thrown for two touchdowns on the young season despite having completed two-thirds of his passes (50 for 75).
The Panthers attack has been led by RB Israel Abanikanda, who ran for four scores and 177 yards on 19 carries against Rhode Island. Since a dud in Week 1 vs. West Virginia, Abanikanda has rushed for at least 100 yards and a touchdown in the three games since. Georgia Tech ranks 12th worst in rushing yards allowed per game (209.5) so look for the Panthers and their junior running back to feast once again.
What you need to know about Georgia Tech
There has been plenty of upheaval around the Yellow Jackets football program this week as coach Geoff Collins and Athletic Director Todd Stansbury were fired on Monday. Interim coach Brent Key will guide Georgia Tech for the rest of the 2022 season. Outside of a 35-17 win over FCS Western Carolina, the Yellow Jackets have been outscored 110-20 by Clemson, Ole Miss, and UCF.
There haven't been many bright spots offensively for Tech who is led by sophomore QB Jeff Sims. Last year he accounted for 16 passing / rushing touchdowns in seven games but has been held to only two thus far this season. As a whole, Georgia Tech has only averaged 311.5 yards per game, among the top-20 worst teams in college football thus far.
