Pitt wide receivers Devin Street and Tyler Boyd have seen much success already this season and, along with quarterback Tom Savage, are making a real impact on the Panthers production. The ESPN.com's Matt Fortuna featured the dynamic duo in a Tuesday morning blog: Receivers provide huge boost for Pitt
Pitt's impressive 58-point performance against Duke on the road on Saturday has brought in numerous awards and honors for the Panthers. A complete list of these honors is below. Be sure to vote for senior QB Tom Savage in the Davey O'Brien Award Fan Vote, as well as the Capital One Cup Impact Performance of the Week.
Senior wide receiver Devin Street sat down with Gregg Giannotti of Sportsradio 93.7 The Fan, and Pitt sideline reporter, this week. Devin talks about Tom Savage and the culture change Head Coach Paul Chryst has brought to the program.
Pitt expects more from All-American candidate Donald "One month before the start of Pitt training camp, preseason honors are pouring in for Donald, who has been named All-American by two magazines (Lindy's and Phil Steele) and All-ACC by those two plus Athlon and Sporting News. "I'm excited about it, but I still have to go out there and play football," he said." - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
Receiver Street trying to set example for Pitt "Senior wide receiver Devin Street is trying to lay the foundation of culture change on the Pitt football team.
A three-year starter who's on the regional covers of Sporting News and Athlon, Street has been in the middle of coaching turnover and turmoil over the past two seasons, but he said the time for making excuses is past." - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
One month 'til training Camp "We've officially reached the one-month countdown for the opening of Pitt's training camp for the 2013 season. Four weeks from today, the Panthers will open up camp on the South Side (and eight weeks from yesterday they'll open up the 2013 season in primetime against Florida State)." - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

four catches for 73 yards and a touchdown in a 35-17 upset of No. 13 Virginia
Tech at Heinz Field on Sept. 15, helping Coach Paul Chryst earn his first
career head coaching victory.
pass catcher has already put his name in the Pitt record books several times,
sitting in the top 10 of five different categories: receptions in a season,
receiving yards in a season, receptions in a game, career receiving yards and
career receptions. He enters his redshirt senior season with the chance to statistically
become one of the best Pitt wide receivers of all time.
finishing with 73 receptions for 975 yards and five touchdowns in 2012, Street
needs just 20 receptions to break Latef Grim's career catches mark and 1,015
more receiving yards to top Antonio Bryant's career receiving yardage record.
