He has tallied at least one sack in every game this season and he is the active NCAA leader in career sacks with 26.5, which ties him for fourth all-time on Pitt’s career sacks list. (Read More).

Volleyball: Mechael Guess. The junior right side hitter had 19 kills (3.17/set) and hit at a .368 clip in two matches against Miami and No. 21 Florida State.
