Pitt Drops Out of AP Poll Following Upset Loss to Georgia Tech



Pitt football head coach Pat Narduzzi

Pitt dropped out of the recent AP poll that came out Sunday after losing Saturday night to Georgia Tech.

The Panthers find themselves outside of the top 25 rankings for the first time in over a year and ends a streak of 13 straight AP polls they earned a spot in. They also did not receive even a single vote as well, even with the recent drop out of the rankings.

The last time they played as an unranked team is October 2021, when they won three straight games and earned a spot after beating Virginia Tech on the road. They faced Clemson the following week ranked at No. 23.

The streak of 13 AP polls is the longest since 1989-90 for Pitt. They stayed ranked the entire 1989 season and then four games in the 1990 season for 16 straight rankings.

Pitt looks to get back on the right track this Saturday as they take on Virginia Tech at Acrisure Stadium, Oct. 8 at 3:30 P.m.
