Coordinator Speak: Dave Huxtable

Pitt's continued work on basic fundamentals such as tackling showed up in Saturday's 27-6 win over Rutgers.

Dave Huxtable is pleased, at the very least, that his defensive unit has improved from the beginning of the season to now. He says he wasn't aware (until he was pointed out) that his defense ranks third in the Big East.

He likes the idea of getting to a bowl game, for the simple fact of getting another 15 practices; another extra two weeks of practices to improve even more. He compared that to other stops he's been at, mainly Central Florida, where he always felt that the extra practices and bowl games were a perfect segway into spring practices.
