9 Oklahoma State coming to Heinz Field for Saturday’s noon game, Pat Narduzzi isn’t ready to declare his Pitt secondary fixed despite statistical improvements from last season.
The Panthers (1-1) have given up some big plays through the air, but most of them have been made by opposing running backs – including the 46-yard touchdown reception by Penn State’s Saquon Barkley in Saturday’s 33-14 loss.
“I don’t feel good when I look at James Washington out there and Mason Rudolph,” Narduzzi said Monday, naming the Cowboys’ top receiver and quarterback.
Narduzzi certainly doesn’t plan on leaving anyone on an island with Washington, the All-Big 12 wideout who caught nine passes for 296 yards and two touchdowns against the Panthers last season.
Key to win: The Panthers must slow Cowboys quarterback Mason Rudolph, the all-time leading passer in Oklahoma State history with 9,352 yards.
