PAT’S THOUGHTS:

Tough game to handicap.  GT just lost to USF on the road, but that was with giving up two returns for TDs.  They go on the road again to face a Pittsburgh team in a letdown spot after getting drilled by nemesis Penn State.  GT also has Clemson on deck next week, and it may be a bit of a look-ahead spot.  I like GT, but am not willing to give up points on the road.  Pass.
