Pitt makes their first road trip of the season today when they take on Duke. As we've said all week, it's a game Pitt really should win despite being away from Heinz Field for the first time all year.
Maybe the biggest thing to watch is how the numerous freshmen (as I said earlier this week, 12 have suited up already this year) will react. If it's not that, it's the turnover bug. Pitt has had quite a few of them this season and even in the blowout win last week against New Mexico, the Panthers had a total of four with two fumbles and two Tom Savage interceptions. Give Duke four turnovers and that's a recipe for disaster.
