Pitt’s X-Factor Vs. Penn State

This wideout will be heavily featured on Saturday

Maurice Ffrench, WR

In addition to having one of the most oddly-spelled last names in college football, Maurice Ffrench possesses what’s necessary to beat Penn State’s secondary: breakaway speed.

Through Pitt’s first two games, the 5’11 senior has hauled in 16 passes for 192 yards and the touchdown shown in the clip above. No other Panther has double-digit receptions yet.

In this contest, quarterback Kenny Pickett, who has gone 47-for-78 for 506 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions so far, will likely have to continue to air it out and should look French’s way most of the time. 

BetQL’s NCAA Football Model lists Pitt (+17) as a ★★★★ bet this week. Make sure to check the “Games” page to monitor this contest up until kickoff. You might be hearing more about this talented wideout in the postgame highlights!
