The O-line has quickly gelled, making it easy for the newly acquired quarterback Tom Savage and his offensive weapons to thrive. Behind the offensive line of Pittsburgh, Savage and the offense are averaging over 53 points in their last two games. Redshirt senior guard Cory King is impressed with how the line has managed to perform so early in the season.
"With (redshirt freshman) Adam Bisnowaty being so young and (redshirt junior) T.J. Clemmings coming from the other side of the ball and picking it up as fast as he did is pretty impressive," said King. "There haven't been a lot of those 'inexperienced' mistakes and overall we have been pretty good on the line."
Freshman tight end Scott Orndoff is also impressed with what this Pitt offense is able to do. While Orndoff is surprised with how quickly the offense is clicking, many Pitt fans are surprised by the strong showing from freshmen like Orndoff. The young tight end has scored in two out of his first three college games.
Orndoff caught both a 4-yard pass from Savage against New Mexico and a 17-yard pass against Duke. With freshmen like Orndoff, wide receiver Tyler Boyd and running back James Conner already displaying their talents early, Pitt fans may be shocked with what this offense has yet to showcase.
"Regardless of how you look at the game we still scored 58 points, and I don't know when the last time was when Pitt was able to do that," said Orndoff. "We even surprised ourselves with that, but we cannot take anything for granted. We still have to work on getting better at every position and working toward Virginia this week."
