Pitt senior QB Nathan Peterman completed 9-of-18 passes for 251 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 76-61 win over Pitt.

Oh baby. Syracuse and Pitt combined to score 137 points, setting the record for the highest-scoring game in FBS history. In addition to his four touchdowns passing, Peterman added 79 yards rushing and another score. There has been a noticeable statistical uptick for the 6-foot-2, 221-pounder of late, as he has now thrown for at least three touchdown passes in each of his last three games. To be precise, he has notched 12 scoring tosses in that space.

Pitt senior QB Nathan Peterman completed 11-of-18 passes for 237 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's romp of a win over Duke.

Riding high off their upset of Clemson last weekend, the Panthers piled it on against the Blue Devils, scoring a symmetrically beautiful 14 points in every quarter on their way to the 56-14 victory. Peterman has been shredding of late, with 10 of his 20 touchdown passes on the season coming in his last three games.

Pro Football Focus notes that Pitt's starting five along the offensive line have surrendered just four knockdowns through 10 games.

Per PFF, the Panthers line leads the country with a 92.9 pass-blocking efficiency rating. With a consistently clean pocket to work out of, senior gunslinger Nathan Peterman has been able to turn in a relatively mistake-free season, throwing for 2,114 yards with a 19/4 TD/INT ratio. After averaging 7.3 YPA last season, Peterman is up to 8.4 YPA for the 2016 campaign. He just put forth his best statistical effort of the season, throwing for 308 yards and five touchdowns in Saturday's upset of Clemson.

Pittsburgh senior QB Nathan Peterman completed 22-of-37 passes for 308 yards and five touchdowns in Saturday's 43-42 upset of Clemson.

Peterman had done dependable work for the Panthers entering Saturday's showdown with the Tigers, pitching a 14/4 TD/INT ratio through nine games, but his performance against Clemson was a bridge beyond. The 6-foot-2, 221-pound gunslinger did the bulk of his damage -- at least on the touchdown front -- in the first half, when he squeezed off four of his five aerial scores. Both the five touchdown passes and the 308 passing yards represented season highs for Peterman.
Nov 12 - 7:47 PM

Pittsburgh senior QB Nathan Peterman completed 19-of-32 passes for 175 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's win over Villanova.

Peterman wasn't exactly smoking the Wildcats on Saturday, but he played well enough in a forgettable sort of way. The 6-foot-2, 221-pound senior tossed a nine-yard touchdown to RB James Conner with under 20 seconds remaining in the first quarter. He wouldn't strike again until the fourth quarter, when he found Jester Weah for a 16-yard score. Peterman threw for 2,287 yards with a 20/8 TD/INT ratio in 2015.
Sep 3 - 6:38 PM

Pittsburgh senior QB Nathan Peterman impressed a rival ACC coach with his 2015 play.

"I was impressed with the way Nathan Peterman stepped up and took control of the team," he said. "He was an unknown quantity, but he kept it simple and didn’t make a lot of mistakes. He’s not real flashy but he did a nice job managing the game." The 6-foot-2, 221-pounder is a pure game manager. He completed 61.5-percent of his passes (second in the ACC) for 2,287 yards and a 20/8 TD/INT rate last year.
Aug 4 - 8:12 PM

Pittsburgh graduate QB Nathan Peterman completed 22-of-34 passes for 232 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 45-34 win over Louisville.

Pittsburgh exited the first quarter trailing 10-7. Then, Peterman happened. The 6-foot-2, 221-pound graduate gunslinger slung all four of his touchdown passes in the second quarter. In his last two games, he's thrown for a combined seven touchdowns. Overall, Peterman's racked up 2,008 yards passing with an 18/4 TD/INT ratio.

Pittsburgh HC Pat Narduzzi indicated that graduate QB Nathan Peterman will be his starting QB on Saturday.

Although Peterman will get the nod for the starting job for Pitt, HC Narduzzi has stated that there will be a package for Chad Voytik moving forward.

Pittsburgh HC Pat Narduzzi indicated that he'll play two quarterbacks against Iowa on Saturday.

Chad Voytik entered the year as starter but has struggled to move the chains or challenge teams downfield despite having one of the nation's best WRs in Tyler Boyd. Tennessee transfer QB Nathan Peterman easily outplayed him in Saturday's 24-7 win over Akron, but the guess here is Narduzzi wishes Voytik would take a quick step forward and seize the job, as this will be Peterman's last year with the Panthers.

Pittsburgh graduate QB Nathan Peterman replaced starter Chad Voytik in the second quarter and completed 12-of-17 attempts for 148 yards and a score in Saturday's 24-7 win over Akron.

Akron was hanging around when the Tennessee transfer replaced Voytik, who went 6-of-8 for 32 yards. Panthers coach Pat Narduzzi says he'll use both next week at Iowa. "I think we've got two really good quarterbacks, so why wouldn't use both of them to help us," Narduzzi said. "Last week (in a 45-37 win over Youngstown State), we went with Chad more. Today, we just felt like Nathan was a little hotter."

Former Tennessee QB Nathan Peterman will play his graduate years at Pittsburgh.

Peterman graduated early, so he will have two more seasons of eligibility with the Panthers. "It was time to move on," Peterman said. "...I’ve been trying to see what other opportunities I could get to have a better opportunity to get on the field." Peterman started one game in each of the last two seasons.

Tennessee QB Nathan Peterman is visiting Pittsburgh as a possible transfer destination, according to Chris Peak of Rivals.

Tennessee offensive coordinator Mike Bajakian left for an NFL job, but previously stated the quarterback was unlikely to leave the Vols. Peterman is likely looking for more playing time, something he wouldn't see behind Josh Dobbs at Tennessee.

Tennessee redshirt freshman QB Nathan Peterman, who drew his first start against Florida, underwent hand surgery after the game.

The young passer will miss at least a month since the injury was to his throwing hand. Peterman was sidelined in the second half, but it was tough to tell if the demotion was due to poor play or injury. Expect Justin Worley to start against Alabama.

Tennessee redshirt freshman QB Nathan Peterman will start against Florida on Saturday.

Peterman will draw his first start against arguably the top defense in the country, including a front four who causes all sorts of trouble in the backfield. Justin Worley had been the school's starter, but the competition re-opened following their last game.
