(As always here are the Georgia Tech Game Notes for Saturday as put out by the Pitt Media Dept.)
We face our second ACC conference team on Saturday at Heinz Field. The kick-off will be at 12:30 and at Heinz Field. As we remember last season we beat the Yellow-Jackets by a score of 31-28 on an almost-last minute FG by Chris Blewitt:
That was also Nate Peterman’s first three-TD game for Pitt as he went 14/21 (66.6%) for 162 yards and 3 TDs & 0 INTs. That sort of play is what we came to expect from Peterman last year – not a lot of yardage but production in what he did do. Let’s hope he replicates that Saturday.
What was best about that 2105 GT game to me was that it put the previous year’s 56-28 loss where we fumbled the ball away so much to rest. That loose-fingered play led to this post-game paragraph that I wish I had written as it fit the situation perfectly:
“Pitt did its part to help during a comical opening 10 minutes that practically gifted Georgia Tech a massive lead before the game was halfway through the first quarter. The Panthers fumbled four times in their first six plays, finding increasingly elaborate ways to give the Yellow Jackets the ball.”
