Cavanaugh believes Palko can lead Pitt to title

Matt Cavanaugh raised the bar at the University of Pittsburgh in the '70s. He is the last quarterback to lead the Panthers to the national title and the last to orchestrate an undefeated season.

Thirty years later, he's coaching a quarterback who has the same goals, the same abilities to raise that bar again.

That's why Cavanaugh and Pittsburgh junior Tyler Palko were attached at the hip this spring, working endless hours to return the Panthers to glory.
