Blitzburgh: Breaking down every Pitt defensive player by the numbers

·2 min read

Tennessee (1-0) will play at No. 14 Pittsburgh (1-0) Saturday in Week 2.

Kickoff between the Vols and Panthers is slated for 3:30 p.m. EDT. ABC will televise the second Johnny Majors Classic at Acrisure Stadium. Sean McDonough, Todd Blackledge and Molly McGrath are on the call.

The Vols defeated Ball State (0-1), 59-10, in Week 1 at Neyland Stadium.

Pittsburgh enters Week 2 following a 38-31 win at home against West Virginia.

Tennessee will look to break a school record for most consecutive games scoring 45 or more points in a contest. Tennessee scored 45 or more points in four consecutive games during the final four contests of the 1993 regular season.

Josh Heupel’s current 45-plus points streak in comparison to 1993 tied for a school record
