Even without Thornhill. The most important thing is going to be stopping Ollison and Hall. DiNucci has talent and he can beat you with his legs. But hes not truly a dynamic runner and he isnt a good enough passer to beat the Hoos secondary. If they cant get going, Pitts offense isnt going to work.

It is still a pro-style offense. Last week, Pitt opened the game with two RBs, in whats called a 21 formation (two RBs, two WRs and a TE). Pitt has not changed the offense much with the new QB. Dinucci is 4th on the team in rush attempts, but has just 45 yards rushing. They are a heavy run team, and that is even moreso with the QB change. Pitt will often line up with multiple TEs in a jumbo package.
