A preseason poll has projected Pitt to finish 4th in their ACC Coastal Division after being the division champion last season. The Panthers and Orange have played every season since Plus, Syracuse was rudely manhandled twice by unranked Maryland and by No.
So far, it has proven to be a survivor. The Panthers were up on Duke, , until late in the third quarter, but lost the lead in about 16 minutes and needed their third consecutive late rally to win the game.
To put things in perspective, here are five thoughts about the 75th game in the Pitt-Syracuse series — third-most frequent matchup for the Panthers after West Virginia and Penn State.
Nothing comes easy The series began in a Pitt victory and the teams have met every year since when the Panthers defeated Jim Brown and the Orange, Back to the more recent past, five of the past seven Pitt-Syracuse games have been decided by margins of three points or fewer points or gone into overtime.
Look for kicker Alex Kessman to play an important role in deciding the outcome. He missed five of his first eight field-goal attempts, but the only miss in four tries since then came from 57 yards.

Cleanup is necessary Pitt has committed an excessive number of penalties 28 in the past two games, dropping the Panthers to nd of FBS teams with a total of 53 for a loss of yards. In any case, game officials are advised to keep their yellow hankies handy. Syracuse is th — and last in the Power 5 — with 55 penalties.
