Can the Beavers Beat Pitt?

Simple question: can the Beavers overcome these obvious obstacles and beat Pitt?

1. No Rodgers Brothers.
     (Who are statistically %60 of the offense, and dynamically %80.)
2. A running game that consists entirely of 1 inexperienced freshman RB.
     (Who, no offense, needs to be told he's really a fullback.)
3. The letdown of going Sun instead of Rose.
     (Sounds weird, when you remember that this was supposed to be a rebuilding year.)
4. A terrible FG kicker.
     (2 good kicks v Arizona excepted.)
5. A new kick returner, as opposed to a great one.
     (Any way you could do this too, Sammie?)
6. Low fan attendance.
     (Who can blame us? 
     "Yeah, I'd like a 2-way flight to El Paso, on New Years' Week, please?"...
     "Uh, sure thing. Aaand, how many children are you willing to, uh, part with?"
)

Fortunately, this is the scenario:
If we lose, nobody, including the national media, can or will blame us.
If we can somehow overcome these obstacles to beat 18th-ranked Pitt, it'll be every bit as impressive to Beaver Nation, and (if they pay attention,) the national media, as the Arizona win, and maybe even close to matching the SC win.

So in conclusion:
GO BEAVERS!
DAM PITT!
