ESPN has Pitt up three spots, to 74th in their FPI rankings. Oddly enough, 1-2 Georgia Tech is 43rd, even after the loss.
While ESPN doesn’t think too highly of the Panthers, over at SBNation, Pitt is up 13 spots to 62 in the latest S&P+ rankings. Sidenote: Georgia Tech was ranked 26th before Saturday’s game.
The stated goal of making the ACC Championship is alive and well, but up next is a team that Pitt has yet to beat since joining the ACC, the North Carolina Tar Heels.
