Pitt running back James Conner has a little bit of Aaron Donald in him. The traits they share do not seem coincidental when you consider the attributes that turn good players into great ones.
They are both relentless, aggressive, physical, constantly churning and mostly impossible to stop -- stat-producing machines who demand constant attention.
Is it any wonder they have become poster children for the Panthers' program over the past two seasons? Not in blue-collar Pittsburgh, a town that prides itself on its hard-working, no-nonsense tough guys. Conner and Donald fit the mold more than most.
ESPN.com is highlighting each week's ultimate ACC road trip throughout the football season. It's no surprise that Pitt's Sept. 2 matchup with Florida State at Heinz Field is mentioned as a "can't miss" contest.
"You can't miss the Labor Day opener at Heinz Field, when Pittsburgh will take on one of the best programs in the ACC in what will be the Panthers' first game as a member of the conference. It will be a nationally-televised game that will mean something to the conference race, and it will be the first chance of the season to see both programs under the direction of their new quarterbacks."
