Pitt ran the "Philly Special", the same play that the Eagles used against the Belicheats when they won the Super Bowl (Nick Foles caught the pass). The Panthers set it up the same way, with QB Pickett flapping his arms and yelling at the linemen while the snap went to the RB. The only wrinkle was that Pitt had the QB slip inside instead of flare to the corner.

A couple of young Turks were at the game and our texts crossed packets in the ether somewhere over Harrisburg. Nice bounceback for Pitt after they threw away a really good chance to beat Penn State.
