Twitter Reaction to Pitt’s Gutsy Win Over North Carolina



It wasn’t the explosive offensive showdown that many expected Thursday night between Pitt and North Carolina, but the Panthers did just enough to squeak by the Tar Heels at home.

After a fast start for Pitt against UNC, the Panthers built a 17-0 lead early in the game, but the Tar Heels battled back over the course of the game to force overtime with a last minute field goal at 23-23. After a Pitt drive at the end of regulation ended with an incomplete Hail Mary, we received overtime football.

In the pouring rain, Kenny Pickett led Pitt to a go-ahead touchdown, with a scoring strike to Lucas Kroll, and the Pitt defense picked off UNC’s Sam Howell on fourth down in overtime to clinch a huge ACC victory.
