UNC 4-1 SU and ATS All-Time vs Pitt

For a long time meetings between the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Pittsburgh Panthers were few and far between, but since Pitt joined the ACC in 2013 the two teams are quickly becoming accustomed to one another. In five all-time matchups between the two teams, UNC is 4-1 SU and ATS.

  • North Carolina is 6-14 SU in their last 20 games on the road in October.
  • In their four game winning streak Pitt has recorded five interception on defense while none on offense.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of Pittsburgh's last 10 games in October.

North Carolina, Pitt, and Duke are all 6-1 with an unbeaten conference record, but the Tar Heels likely have the best offense of the bunch. UNC has averaged 38 points per game behind a balanced attack, which has them ranked in the top 40 in both passing yards and rushing yards. The offense has put up some big numbers for the Tar Heels as well, topping the 40-point plateau in four of their past six games.

Pitt is coming off a historic win for the program against Syracuse last week. The Panthers had not been down in the fourth quarter and won a football game since 2009, but they were sparked by a fake punt for a first down that led to the game-winning score.
