Zenel Demhasaj will get his first career start on Saturday. Matt Rotheram will move inside to start at right guard, and Demhasaj will start at right tackle. Paul Chryst and players Jarred Holley, Ryan Turnley and Mike Shanahan preview Ole Miss.

It has the potential to be a statement game for Pitt heading into the ACC.

Paul Chryst and his players don't see it that way. When asked if it would be nice to put a victory over Ole Miss alongside a Louisville victory over Florida in the Sugar Bowl--with both teams leaving the Big East for the ACC--Chryst downplayed it.

"I think it has nothing to do with any of the conferences," Chryst said. "It's Ole Miss and Pitt. It's a chance to play a good team, and that's what the whole thing is about. It's those two teams playing, and that's enough."
