Virginia Tech Vs. Pittsburgh 2012: Hokies Being Shocked, Down 21-3 At Half

The Virginia Tech Hokies are the No. 13 team in the country, and the Pittsburgh Panthers lost to Youngstown State and then Cincinnati in their first two games of the season, but the future ACC foes have had their roles reversed as the Panthers lead the Hokies 21-3 after the first half.

Virginia Tech's star quarterback, Logan Thomas, has thrown three interceptions, giving the Panthers opportunity after opportunity to drive the field and score. However, the Hokies haven't been able to contain the Pitt offense. The same Panther team that scored just 17 points against Youngstown State has gashed the Hokies, with quarterback Tino Sunseri and running back Ray Graham leading the charge.

Sunseri is 10-14 for 185 yards and a touchdown, Graham has rushed for 65 yards and 12 carries and has scored twice. If the Panthers can continue to run the ball like they have and turn over the Hokies, this could be a massive upset.
