SMU Vs. Pitt, 2012 Compass Bowl: Panthers Will Have Their Hands Full With Mustangs

The Pitt Panthers might not have had the season that many expected from them, but they are still playing in a bowl game well after New Year's Day, and that has to count for something, right?

They will take on the Mustangs of Southern Methodist on Saturday at 1:00 PM ET. You'll be able to find that game on ESPN and ESPN3. In a season that seems to be full of them, this could be another high scoring Bowl Game. Southern Methodist boasts the 23 best passing attack in the Nation, while the Panthers are top 75 in both passing and rushing. On the other hand, they both have above average defenses, so we don't really know what to expect. With such a long layoff in between their games, it could be an interesting contest.

We'll have plenty more on this game throughout the week on SB Nation Pittsburgh in this StoryStream. But for more on this game and all things Panthers athletics, head over to Cardiac Hill.
