Upset official: Pitt knocks off VaTech
Posted by Ben Kercheval on September 15, 2012, 3:56 PM EDTOf the two top 25 upsets brewing just a short while ago, only one of them came to fruition. No. 16 TCU survived a turnover-filled Big 12 debut to top Kansas 20-6.
No. 13 Virginia Tech? Not so lucky against the might Pitt Panthers. Hokies quarterback Logan Thomas threw three interceptions as part of a four-turnover game for VaTech in a35-17 loss. Virginia Tech’s offense couldn’t run the ball, couldn’t convert third downs, and as a result, couldn’t get in any sort of rhythm.
Not that VaTech’s defense, usually a salty group under Bud Foster, was much better. That group gave up 537 yards to Pitt and nearly allowed two 100-yard rushers.
It was an all-around bad performance on the road.
With the loss, No. 5 Florida State, which exorcised its Wake Forest Demons (so to speak) today, and No. 11 Clemson look like the ACC’s two best teams.
There was a lot of hype surrounding Virginia Tech heading into the season — just as much hype was handed to Thomas — but the Hokies haven’t played like a top 25 team yet this season.
I have no defense.
Neither did VT.
At least they are still ranked.
Well hell, if you're going to throw one at Buck...I can't defend it either. Pitiful
