Football has not been going good for the major players around the state recently. The Falcons stubbed their toe on Thursday night and UGA and Tech are both still riding losing streaks. Maybe today the latter can pull themselves up and turn things around. At least Georgia Southern has kept up their winning ways and they will also do it again this week too.
Georgia Tech vs Pitt
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets welcome the Pitt Panthers down the “The Flats” today. To say the season for Paul Johnson’s team has been disappointing to this point is an understatement. I would love to tell you that they can breathe easy this week and get back in the win column against a lowly team. Unfortunately the Panthers are 4-1 and tied with UNC for second in the Coastal Division.
Pitt’s only loss this season has come to a nationally ranked Iowa team. The Panthers are winning with defense and that’s bad news for a Tech offense that has been all out of sync this year. This year’s team may be in serious danger of breaking that consecutive bowl appearance streak.
Prediction: Pitt 21 Tech 17
