Miami scored on their first four drives of the game and cruised to a 41-31 victory over Pitt in the regular season finale at Heinz Field on Friday. Isaac Bennett rushed for 141 yards and a touchdown for the Panthers.

The Panthers can finish their first season in the Atlantic Coast Conference with a .500 record in conference play by beating the Hurricanes on Saturday.

The Panthers (6-5) came up with a late defensive stop to seal the victory, as Syracuse’s final pass fell incomplete on 4th down from the Pitt 36.

Tom Savage passed for 313 yards and two touchdowns as Pitt clawed back from a 27-3 second half deficit to tie the game at 27, but a Ryan Switzer 61-yard punt return for a touchdown—his second of the game—lifted North Carolina to a 34-27 win over the Panthers at Heinz Field Saturday afternoon.

Sometimes it’s just not meant to be.

Fresh off a big victory over Notre Dame, the Pitt Panthers meet the North Carolina Tar Heels at Heinz Field on Saturday looking to clinch bowl-eligibility with their sixth win of the season.

Carolina, winners of three straight, has righted the ship after starting the season 1-5. Only one of those victories, however, has come against a team with a winning record (Boston College).
