Georgia Tech Loses to Pitt 24-19

On Saturday, the Yellow Jackets road struggles continued, as they fell to Pittsburgh 24-19. The loss dropped the Jackets to 1-2 on the season and frustration is beginning to mount for the players, coaching staff, and fans.

The Panthers jumped out to a 21-0 first half lead, dominating the Jackets in every aspect of the game. Tech was not much better in the second half, however they still crawled back to make it a one score game with 0:37 left, but were unable to recover the ensuing onside kick.

The path gets no easier going forward, with Clemson coming to town next weekend.
