Pitt bowl game hopes up after Virginia Tech win

Heading into the Panthers' game against Virginia Tech, the team's bowl game hopes were fading. Pitt had only won three of their first six games and considering the second half of the schedule is significantly harder than the first, missing out on a bowl game was a real possibility. That possibility still exists, of course, but Pitt's win on Thursday against Virginia Tech...

Highlight: Hokies’ Bucky Hodges makes an amazing diving catch

Virginia Tech had a total of 61 yards in the first half. They got 41 yards on one play of the first drive of the second half with a great diving catch from their athletic freshman tight end Bucky Hodges.

Final Run Through For The Hokies

Okay, do yourself a favor and read these two posts from over at The Key Play. Further confirming my view that neither side is going to do anything too out of character for this game. Both teams have coaches that have their game plans. Know what the identity of their respective teams should be, and will not deviate far off the script. I will note, that if there is any way to sneak...

At First Glance: Pitt vs. Virginia Tech Preview

Purely from the fan's point of view, bye weeks aren't a lot of fun. But as someone that maintains a blog 24/7/365, I can't tell you how much the break is appreciated. Frankly, it was just good to not have to obsess over how Pitt was going to fare and just kick back and relax last weekend. This isn't another bye week, but since Pitt plays Virginia Tech on Thursday...
