The Blue Devils are playing for bowl positioning as they close out a regular season that has seen them battle critical injuries - most notably to dual-threat quarterback Riley Leonard - since mid-October. The Panthers are closing their worst season under ninth-year coach Pat Narduzzi.

KEY MATCHUP

Duke's defense against Pitt's offense. The Blue Devils' defense has been a strength all year, though the unit has slid to 27th in the Bowl Subdivision ranks in scoring (19.8) after giving up five touchdowns through the first four games. The Panthers' offense has been a mess, averaging 20.3 points and 318.8 yards per game to rank near the bottom of FBS. Some of that is fueled by the Panthers' 20 turnovers, which also puts them near the bottom of the national stats.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Pittsburgh: QB Nate Yarnell. The redshirt sophomore thrust himself into the mix to be the starter in 2024 with a solid performance in a win over Boston College last week. Yarnell doesn't overwhelm with physical talent but has shown a penchant for making good decisions and avoiding turnovers, which may be all Pitt needs to be competitive.

Duke: QB Grayson Loftis. The former third-stringer and January freshman enrollee has shown positive signs in recent weeks, including leading a second-half comeback in a double-overtime loss at North Carolina. He threw for a season-high 278 yards in last week's loss to Virginia and has thrown for five TDs with one interception in the past two games.
