Postgame Reaction from Pitt’s ACC Championship Game Loss to Clemson

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Pitt came into the ACC Championship game as nearly four-touchdown underdogs to No. 2 Clemson, and the Panthers’ 42-10 loss on Saturday at Bank of America Stadium proved that the Tigers are the top dog in the ACC and one of the best teams in the country.

I don’t know if its our OC, QB or WRs or a combination thereof; but something has to give.

Imagine what the running game would look like with… Read more »
