Locked On Pitt: Why Pitt Should Rely Upon Israel Abanikanda to Defeat Georgia Tech



Rain is projected in the forecast for Saturday night’s matchup of Pitt and Georgia Tech, and it sets up the Panthers for the most obvious gameplan. Why should they rely upon Israel Abanikanda and Vincent Davis to lead the way to victory? How else can the rain change the game for Georgia Tech and Pitt moving forward?

With the firing of Geoff Collins, how could this Georgia Tech team respond under interim head coach Brent Key? Should the Panthers be worried about anything specific with the Yellow Jackets offense? How does Jeff Sims affect the game?

Lastly, we talk about the stylistic matchup. How will Charlie Thomas missing the first half of the game impact Georgia Tech’s run defense? Can GT keep the game close through explosive plays? How likely is it that they could slow down Pitt’s rushing attack?
