Step aside, Dan Marino.

Pickett is now over 400 yards in this game for the fourth time in his career. That’s also a program record for a career.
He threw touchdown passes on back-to-back Pittsburgh drives to open the third quarter and tie the game. The Panthers trailed 31-17 at the half, but didn’t take long to erase that deficit.
Pickett is now up to 65 passing touchdowns in his career, which is third all-time in Panthers history. He trails only Tyler Palko (66) and Marino (79) in that regard.
Pickett is in his fifth year of eligibility for the Panthers. He’s improved his efficiency as a passer this season, and entered this week as one of the top candidates for the 2021 Heisman Trophy.
