PITTSBURGH (AP) — A month ago, it appeared Pittsburgh was going to pass its way into ACC contention.
Now it looks like the Panthers will try to do it on the ground.
Pitt (4-2) rolled up 266 yards rushing in a 35-24 victory over Old Dominion last Saturday, including a career-high 240 by junior running back Isaac Bennett.
Coach Paul Chryst says his team is finding different ways to win but added they haven't been able to do anything consistently well. Pitt quarterback Tom Savage tied an ACC record by throwing for six touchdowns in a win over Duke last month but has two touchdowns total in his last three games.
The Panthers play at Navy (3-3) on Saturday.
