It may be a little late, but Pittsburgh is shaking up its defense after allowing 523 total yards, including 307 yards on the ground, in Saturday's devastating 52-31 loss to West Virginia.

Defensive end Claude Harriott, a first-team All-Big East selection last season, may be headed to the bench. Coach Walt Harris said he is inserting Azzie Beagnyam as a co-starter for the Temple game because the redshirt freshman played better than Harriott against West Virginia.
