Pitt is coming off a 3-1 start to the season, the lone loss coming in overtime to No. 8 Tennessee with backup Nick Patti playing through injury.
Georgia Tech is 1-3, with losses to Clemson, Ole Miss and UCF, and now searching for a new coach following Geoff Collins being fired. It’s a tale of two programs, and the oddsmakers favor Pitt heavily entering Saturday’s primetime matchup.
Pitt opens as 18-point favorites against Georgia Tech in what’s expected to be a low-scoring game — the over/under set at 49.5 points.
