Pittsburgh Panthers Visit North Carolina Tar Heels in Week 12 Clash – Betting Lines and Pick

Pittsburgh Panthers


North Carolina Tar Heels
Saturday, November 15, 2014 3:33 PM ET
Kenan Stadium

Both North Carolina and Pittsburgh hoped to contend for a spot in the ACC Championship Game this season. Instead, both teams are scrambling just to become bowl eligible. And neither has been too kind to its financial backers, combining to go 6-11 ATS on the season. Two teams in desperate need of a victory meet when the 4-5 Tar Heels host the 4-5 Panthers Saturday afternoon in Chapel Hill.

These teams met as conference rivals for the first time last year, a 34-27 North Carolina victory at Heinz Field. Carolina led that game 27-3 early in the third quarter, allowed Pitt to come back and tie the score at 27-27 halfway through the fourth, then scored the game-winning touchdown on a punt return with four minutes to go to win outright as a one-point road dog.
