Summary: Pittsburgh is making the move from the Big East to the ACC and they're in the Coastal Division. Coach Paul Chryst named transfer Tom Savage his starting QB midway through preseason camp. Savage played well in his first year at Rutgers but then lost the starting job and decided to transfer to Arizona. That didn't pan out and he transferred again to Pittsburgh so he hasn't played an actual regular season game since 2010. The defense will be the side the Panthers rely on to win games. Nine of Pittsburgh's 15 starters are back on that side of the ball.
