It appears to me that PSU has better pass reception and better defense than Pitt or Oregon. Course we'll see what happens when PSU plays some stronger teams. Oregon appears to be taller and more powerful than Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh doing a pretty good job of tooling the block but are still getting blocked a fair bit.
