After Georgia Tech’s Week 3 game at UCF was canceled, the Yellow Jackets return home to Bobby Dodd Stadium on Saturday to host their first ACC opponent of the season— the Pittsburgh Panthers.
Here are a few notes about the matchup:
Game time: 12:30 p.m.
Where: Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta
TV: ACC Network
Last meeting: The two teams faced off last season at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field with Pitt winning, 37-34.
What to know about Pitt: Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi is evaluating who to start at quarterback at Georgia Tech after a 59-21 loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday.
Southern California graduate transfer Max Browne has started all three of the Panthers’ games at quarterback so far this season.
Browne completed 7 of 10 passes for 60 yards in the first quarter before being replaced by redshirt sophomore Ben DiNucci in the second quarter. The Panthers failed to make it to midfield and managed 77 total yards of offense in the first quarter under Browne.
When DiNucci stepped on the field in the second quarter after fans had been chanting his name, he led the Panthers to their first points of the game on his first drive.
DiNucci was 13-for-25 for 288 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions, one which was returned for a touchdown against Oklahoma State.
"We got a decision to make, for sure," Narduzzi said, according to Pitt Live. "You look at it, Max Browne wasn't very productive when he was in there. ... I think we got two pretty good quarterbacks. Do we have a great quarterback? No, not right now, okay?”
The Panthers won their first game of the season against Youngstown State, 28-21 before falling to Penn State, 33-14, in Week 2.
