When Pittsburgh was up 21 points against Cincinnati in the game last week that would decide the Big East Championship they have envisioned a much bigger bowl game then the Meineke Car Care Bowl. Then the defense collapsed and the Bearcats won the Big East crown and are playing Florida in a BCS Bowl game. The Panthers will have to settle for a trip to Charlotte where they will take on the North Carolina Tar Heels.  

For the Tar Heels this trip to Charlotte is a welcomed one. They also struggled down the stretch but will have a home field advantage and play here for the second time in two years. Last year they sold out this stadium as they played Boston College and had an edge in the crowd. Although Pittsburgh travels well they should have it again this year against the Panthers.  

While Carolina has an excellent defense they have big problems on offense and at times if the deep threat is eliminated can have trouble moving the ball at all. The Heels are off a game where they passed very well but that is not a good thing in this spot. The Tar Heels are 7-20 ATS in their last 27 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game. The Panthers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite and they are 4-0 ATS in the last four games after a straight up loss. The Panthers still have plenty to look forward to as they can win ten games this season. Dion Lewis is a beast in the backfield and will be too much for the Tar Heels to handle as the Panthers win in Charlotte.
