    The 2014 Pitt Panthers are looking to build on the momentum of last year’s upset Fiesta Bowl victory against Oklahoma. Going into his first full year as Coach, BigKing is hoping Pitt’s success on the field translates into success on the recruiting trail. This coach’s first recruiting class will be critical to rebuilding the program.

    There are 12 seniors on the roster and one open slot, leaving a possible 16 scholarships available.

    Offense

    Under Center could be one of two Senior Quarterbacks that spit the starts last year. Anthony Gonzalez is a athletic playmaker, while Mark Myers is a classic drop back passer. Pitt is looking to use more spread formations this year, which could give the early advantage to Gonzalez.

    Defense

    Anchoring the Defense is the giant defensive end. TJ Clemmings. Clemmings will be looking to carry on the tradition of dominant defensive lineman at Pitt.

    Breakout Player

    For Pitt to truly be successful this year it’s going to need a breakout year from Junior RB Marcus Davenport. Davenport is the type of back who won’t run away from you but will run right through you.

    Prediction 9-4 Big East Champions

    Pitt is not the most talented team in the Big East, however they do have the experience in big game situations, which just might lead them to their second straight Big East Championship.

    Well the Panthers lost their first two games of the season and then ran the table. The recruiting class ended up average but will provide some much needed talent. Pitt's second consecutive Big East championship should provide the moment to bring in the best recruiting class in years.
