It was not discussed, but the memory of two late touchdowns at North Carolina and Oklahoma State lingered in the minds of Pitt’s defensive players.

They saw the offense secure a win against Marshall last week, and Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson decided to test them once again.

The defense took advantage with a fourth-down stop in Georgia Tech’s end, and the offense moved into field-goal range to set up Chris Blewitt’s 31-yard kick that bounced off the right upright and in as time expired to secure a 37-34 come-from-behind win in an ACC Coastal Division game Saturday at Heinz Field.
