Jaylen Twyman racks up three sacks in win over Ohio

The quality of Pitt’s defensive line was in question ahead of the team’s matchup with Ohio, as proven contributors Rashad Weaver and Keyshon Camp had both been lost for the season due to injuries by the end of Week 1. However, the remaining members of the Pitt defensive line came into Week 2 eager to make an impact, and no one was more successful in that endeavor than Jaylen Twyman.

The 6’2”, 290-pound defensive tackle out of Washington, D.C., amassed four tackles on Saturday, including three sacks. In doing so, he became the first Pitt defensive tackle to record three sacks in a game since Aaron Donald accomplished the feat during a 26-14 loss to Utah on Oct.
