  When the Panthers travel to Clemson this weekend, they'll do so with one of the hottest kickers in the country. Kessman was named the ACC's specialist of the week after tallying a career-high 17 points in Pitt's 47-14 win against Virginia Tech last Saturday. He made all five extra point attempts and drilled all four field goals, including makes of 52 and 53 yards. Kessman's four field goals extended his own Pitt record, which now stands at 64 career conversions. His two long-distance kicks also secured what is currently an NCAA record. Kessman is now 12 of 18 on field goals of 50-yards or more. That success rate of 66.7% surpasses Arizona's Max Zendejas' 60.9% clip from 1982-85 as tops all-time in Division I-A college football, among those who qualify with a minimum 15 attempts from distance.

With two ACC games left on the schedule - and a possible bowl in Pitt's future - there's time for that percentage to improve or dip. Either way, it's remarkable Kessman is in this position at all after what he went through only last month. Kessman's first field goal of 50-plus yards this season came at Boston College. The big-legged senior drilled a school-record 58-yarder, one that probably would've been good from 65, with 40 seconds left in regulation to force overtime in a game Pitt had little business winning. - Pittsburgh Post Gazette

  2019 PRESEASON LOU GROZA AWARD WATCH LIST: Alex Kessman, Pittsburgh,...Despite only two seasons under his belt, Kessman enters the season as the FBS active leader in long-range field goals with six. Four of those came last season, the most of any kicker who returns this year. Two of those bombs came against Syracuse, but it was his 45 yarder that sent the game to overtime and set up Pitt's comeback victory. - Lou Groza Award
