With a dangerous Louisville Cardinals team heading to Heinz Field this weekend, Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi spoke on the weekly ACC Coaches’ Teleconference Wednesday.

Here are some of the most important nuggets the Pitt head coach said on the call.

On the team’s success without injured running back James Conner:

“It would be amazing to really see where we’d be right now if James was with us. I can tell you that.”

On Jordan Whitehead playing offense and defense:

“I mean, everybody talks about the offenses, so it’s great to see —  it would be nice to see — a defensive guy win the Heisman some day here soon, and he’s a guy that’s played great football for us both offensively and defensively.”

On Zach Challingsworth’s emergence against Duke:

“He had three unbelievable catches — three big-time catches that you need to make, and I think that gives not only him confidence, but gives Nathan Peterman confidence that, ‘Hey, I can throw the ball the other way, as well.’”
