PITTSBURGH (AP) Kenny Pickett walked into Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi's office last week and spent 30 minutes laughing about the 13th-ranked Panthers' remarkable season, one that carried them to the program's first ACC title and Pickett to a prime spot on NFL draft boards. Narduzzi knew what was coming, so he didn't so much as flinch when his senior quarterback said he was going to skip the Peach Bowl to focus on the next step of his burgeoning career. Asking Pickett to do anything more would have been selfish.
