OUR PREDICTION: The Panthers have been a bad bet to cover historically in this matchup, going 1-5 against the spread in their last six games versus the Tar Heels. But where they have the advantage today is in their running game. Thanks to James Conner and a unit that is 19th in the nation in rushing yards per game (239.0), Pittsburgh should be able to hang with UNC, which ranks 106th in rushing yards allowed per contest (226.7). The Panthers have had issues defensively thus far, but their offense will keep them within a touchdown throughout.
