For the first time since its 1976 national championship season, Pitt will travel to Atlanta to face the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. This will turn out to be a big game as both teams need a win to keep pace with the upper tier in the ACC Coastal Division.
The Panthers are coming off a disappointing loss at the hands of Navy last week while the Yellow Jackets enter as winners of two straight.
This is a game that could go a long way to gaining a bowl bid.
Pitt needs the win badly as they still have games against Notre Dame and Miami on the schedule while the Yellow Jackets still have to face off against Georgia and Clemson.
Can the Panthers go on the road and steal another ACC win?
Let’s take a look.
