After two miserable weeks against top ten teams Penn State and Oklahoma State, Pitt doesn’t have much time to catch its collective breath. The Panthers don’t face a ranked team in Georgia Tech this week, but the Yellow Jackets are a formidable foe that won’t be easy for the team in its first conference game.
As usual, the key to beating the Yellow Jackets will largely be shutting down the team’s running game. Georgia Tech’s run offense is difficult to stop and requires that defensive players not only be in position, but follow through and make tackles. That’s important because the Panthers struggled in both of those areas against Oklahoma State this past weekend.
Georgia Tech (1-1) has racked up 372.5 rushing yards per game – good for first in the nation. They didn’t play this weekend due to Hurricane Irma.
