Pickett has thrown for 2,236 yards with 23 touchdowns and one interception through those first seven games and is averaging 9.2 yards per attempt.

With a new week starting for Pitt, with Miami coming to Heinz Field on Saturday, Pickett is already focused on the Hurricanes, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t take time to enjoy Saturday’s big win against Clemson.

The 23-year-old senior quarterback said after the game on national television, “I’m going to have a cold one and go get ready for Miami.”

That quote got the internet buzzing with some tweeting “that’s my quarterback” and others hoping the Steelers can draft Pickett in April.

The Pgh. Clothing Company already has a “Gonna go have a cold one” shirt available on their website.

The legend of Kenny Pickett continues to grow.
