Pitt commits five fumbles in the first quarter (GIFs)

Things have not gone well early for Pittsburgh during Saturday’s game against ACC Coastal rival Georgia Tech.

Less than 6 minutes into the contest, Pitt found itself trailing 28-0.

Yes, you read that right.

How did that happen? Well, Pitt fumbled the ball on each of its first five possessions and the Yellow Jackets turned the first four of those fumbles into eventual touchdowns.

In fact, Pitt only ran six plays during its first four possessions.

The first fumble was by QB Chad Voytik on a run.

The second was a 74-yard run by RB James Conner that looked to be a touchdown. But Conner fumbled before the end zone.

The third was an Isaac Bennett fumble after a handoff.

The fourth was a bad snap.

That’s wasn't exactly the start the Panthers were hoping for as they’re trying to chase Duke down in the Coastal Division.

Meanwhile, Georgia Tech is on a two-game losing streak after winning its first five. It couldn’t have asked for a better start.
