Panthers hoping to avoid letdown against improving Duke
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The giddiness faded quickly. Call it a byproduct of simple math. For all the euphoria that ensued after Pittsburgh kicker Chris Blewitt's 48-yard field goal lifted the Panthers to a last-minute stunner against No. 2 Clemson last week, in the standings it counts the same as any other victory.
It was a sweet moment to be sure, but it was just one. The Panthers (6-4, 3-3 ACC) understand it won't mean much if they can't back it up on Saturday against improving Duke (4-6, 1-5).

Consider it an act of self-preservation to avoid the all-too-convenient puns that pop up whenever one of his kicks sails wide of the mark.

Pitt scores twice late, edges Georgia Tech 37-34
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Another fourth-quarter lead gone and another "what if" loss looming, Pittsburgh responded with a little bit of savvy, luck and a dash of redemption for its beleaguered defense thrown in for good measure to surge past struggling Georgia Tech.
