The Pitt Panthers are coming off a solid 9-4 season, yet there was something to be desired about last year. The team was equipped with the talent but came up short in what felt like some winnable games and never genuinely challenged for the ACC Title like the 2021 team led by Kenny Pickett did.
Much of that was likely due to the quarterback position, which is much-improved thanks to two transfers coming in during the off-season. Sixth-year senior Phil Jurkovec is looking to have a year that translates into being an NFL draft pick. That is something that would bode well for the Panthers, but he will be pushed by a very talented Penn State transfer in Christian Veilleux, who, even if he doesn't win the job this year, is set up to be the starter next season.
