Turner's Take: Lessons Learned

North Carolina upsets Pitt, 34-31

Even as the Tar Heels are headed for their worst football season in almost 30 years, they still refuse to lose to Pitt.

Key matchup: Pitt DB Damar Hamlin vs. North Carolina QB Not Mitch Trubisky

Nathan Elliott. Brandon Harris. Chazz Surratt. Not exactly a murderers’ row of quarterbacks, but as the Pitt coaching staff plans for struggling North Carolina, variety is the spice of preparation. And while the Tar Heels have used three different players under center this season, it’s who they don’t have there that might make the Panthers sleep a little easier this week. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

Mitch Trubisky ready to roll: ‘I kind of feel like it’s a new season’
