Pitt Week 9 Ultimate Wrap-up: Hokie’d at Heinz
THE BIG LEAD
Pitt falls at home to the #25 Hokies, 39-36. Virginia Tech bucked the odds by winning at Heinz Field, something that they had never done before. It was, as stated by Pat Narduzzi before the game, a “must win” for the program and the loss basically ends any chance of winning the ACC Coastal.

I feel #Pitt is heading in the right direction. This is year 2 for Coach Narduzzi. The Panthers have been in every game. Better days ahead.

The Panthers sit at 5-3 and 2-2 in the ACC Coastal. They travel to the U to take on the Hurricanes next week before heading into Clemson for the biggest challenge of the season.

ESPN Personality Kirk Herbstreit criticized Ejuan Price’s short shorts in a tweet. Fortunately, they later made up.
No harm, no foul. Really appreciate you reaching out, great to be acknowledged by one of the best/most influential in CFB
