Pitt redshirt senior WR Jester Weah caught four passes for 104 yards in Saturday's 20-14 loss to Virginia Tech.

Weah (6'3/190) served as Pitt's best offensive performer in the contest by a fair margin. This was his first 100-yard game since he caught seven passes for 106 yards and a score against NC State back on Oct. 14.
Nov 18 - 4:56 PM

Pittsburgh sophomore QB Ben Dinucci completed 11-of-17 passes for 142 yards in a 34-31 loss to North Carolina on Thursday.

Dinucci was much more effective with his legs in this one, running for 83 yards on 14 carries. That's not to say he was bad with the pass, as he was able to make some big plays through the air. He just wasn't able to find the end zone, and the Pitt defense was unable to stop the Tar Heels all night. Dinucci should make another start next week against Virginia Tech.
Nov 9 - 11:25 PM

Pitt junior RB Darrin Hall ran for 123 yards and four scores on 23 carries in a 34-31 loss to North Carolina on Thursday.

You certainly can't blame Hall for this loss. The 5-foot-11, 215-pound tailback was outstanding for the Panthers, and if Pitt had a semblance of a passing game, they pull this one out. His seven-yard score brought Pittsburgh to within 4 at 14-10, and a one-yard plunge a series later made it 17-14 Panthers. A nine-yard spring in the middle of the third tied the game at 24-24, and another one-yard drive gave Pitt their last lead at 31-27. In a very disappointing year, the development of Hall over the last month is one of the few bright spots for Pittsburgh this year. A tough date with Virginia Tech comes next week.
Nov 9 - 10:58 PM

Pitt senior TE Matt Flanagan (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against North Carolina.

Flanagan (6'6/258) had started all nine of Pitt's games this season before this undisclosed injury concern. The Rutgers transfer has caught 17 passes for 160 yards on the year. Look for Chris Clark to see additional work on Thursday with Flanagan sitting out versus the Tar Heels.
Nov 9 - 6:29 PM

Pitt junior RB Darrin Hall rushed for 111 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries in Saturday's 31-14 win over Virginia.

Hall (5'11/215) opened the game's scoring with a 14-yard touchdown run with 8:30 remaining in the first quarter. This performance was his second straight notable showing, as he was coming off a 254-yard, three-touchdown demolition of Duke. Prior to these two contests, the junior had managed just 108 yards in seven games. He'll be off on bye next weekend, with North Carolina showing on the schedule after that.
Oct 28 - 4:20 PM

Pitt junior RB Darrin Hall rushed for 254 yards and three touchdowns on 24 carries in Saturday's 24-17 win over Duke.

Hall (5'11/215) put on a show with his first two touchdown gallops, scoring from 79 yards out midway through the first quarter and then topping himself via a 92-yard run to glory in the closing seconds of the third quarter. He would cap off his afternoon's work with a go-ahead four-yard touchdown run in the final stanza to give Pitt a 21-17 lead. This singular 254-yard performance was by far the best of Hall's career -- he had rushed for 525 yards total in his three previous seasons.
Oct 21 - 5:00 PM

Pittsburgh sophomore QB Ben Dinucci is still considered the starter, but freshman QB Kenny Pickett continues to see reps.

This is all in replacement for an injured Max Browne. In a perfect world, Pickett would've redshirted, but he entered the game in a blowout loss to NC State, eliminating that possibility. That leads us to believe he will see more and more opportunities moving forward.
Oct 17 - 10:20 AM

Pitt redshirt senior WR Jester Weah caught seven passes for 106 yards and a touchdown in the school's 35-17 loss to NC State on Saturday.

Weah looked great and scored on a 33-yard score when he got behind NC State's secondary. He's an impressive mover at 6-foot-3 and 190-pounds. Just two games ago Weah recorded 157 receiving yards.
Oct 14 - 4:04 PM

Pitt sophomore QB Ben DiNucci will work as starter for the remainder of the campaign with redshirt senior Max Browne undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery.

DiNucci (6'2/220) has made one previous start this season, completing 12-of-19 passes for 110 yards and a touchdown in a loss to Georgia Tech back on September 23. He'll face off with NC State on Saturday as he tries to help Pitt dig out of a 2-4 start to the season.
Oct 12 - 1:49 PM

Pitt redshirt senior QB Max Browne underwent season-ending shoulder surgery.

It's a disappointing end to what has been an underwhelming career for Browne. He transferred over to Pitt in the offseason after failing to hang onto the starting job over Sam Darnold at USC but even in his fresh digs, he was unable to make much of a positive impression. Browne finishes out the current campaign having thrown for 997 yards with a 5/2 TD/INT ratio in six games. Ben DiNucci will serve as starter moving forward with Browne down for the count.
Oct 12 - 1:24 PM

Pittsburgh indefinitely suspended sophomore RB Chawntez Moss.

Moss did not play in the season opener for undisclosed reasons, and Pete Narduzzi is being coy about this suspension as well. "Some days you’re impressed, and some days you’re not," Narduzzi said of Moss' recent performances. Qadree Ollison could see starting snaps once again.
Oct 12 - 11:34 AM

Pittsburgh senior QB Max Browne will miss a few weeks with an injury to his right throwing arm.

Freshman Kenny Pickett will draw the start. Browne left last week's game early after a hit landed him on his arm/shoulder, but news of missing time was a bit delayed. Browne completed over 71 percent of his passes this season with a 5:2 touchdown to interception ratio.
Oct 12 - 11:28 AM

Pitt junior WR Rafael Araujo-Lopes had seven catches for 100 yards in Saturday's 27-24 loss to Syracuse.

It was his first career 100-yard game. The 5-foot-9, 192-pound Araujo-Lopes is really coming on as Pitt begins to form an offensive identity in this rebuilding campaign. He has five or more catches and 72 or more receiving yards in three of the last four games.
Oct 7 - 4:47 PM

Pitt redshirt senior QB Max Browne left Saturday's game against Syracuse due to an a possible arm injury

No word as of yet as to what forced Browne out of the game, but he appeared to have issue moving his right arm when he went to the locker room. He should be considered questionable to return. Ben DiNucci replaced him at quarterback following his early exit.
Oct 7 - 3:18 PM

Pitt redshirt junior FB George Aston (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Syracuse.

Aston (6'0/245) injured his ankle in Saturday's win over Rice. Injuries have been an issue for him this season, as he had previously missed three games due to a lower-body injury sustained in August camp.
