PITTSBURGH — Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi sat down with the media on Thursday for the final time before his team will host Georgia Tech in their ACC opener at Heinz Field this Saturday.
Narduzzi discussed what does and doesn’t matter when it comes to the mental state of his team after an 51-6 loss to Penn State in Week 2 that many called “embarrassing.”
He also talked about the matchup his defense faces against Georgia Tech’s flexbone triple-option attack and his team’s experiences in facing it.
The one thing Narduzzi wouldn’t reveal? Who is going to be holding for kicks. He said Monday that Jake Scarton, who held for Pitt in Week 1 but was injured in a fight before Week 2, could return. If not, punter Kirk Christodoulou and wide receiver Kellen McAlone are options, but Narduzzi said, “I can’t tell you.”
