James Conner, JuJu Smith-Schuster steal show at Pitt game
James Conner is still the Big Man on Campus at Pitt.
And he seemingly covered as much ground Thursday night at Heinz Field as he did when playing for the Panthers.
The former Pitt star running back and current Steeler bounced around the stadium with fellow Steelers rookie and Pittsburgh celebrity JuJu Smith-Schuster during the Panthers' 34-31 loss to North Carolina.
Conner posed for pictures, crashed the Pitt student section and took time for a sideline interview with ESPN.
Fans, it seemed, were more excited to see him than the game.
