Official review: What went wrong for Pitt at UNC

With a little over nine minutes remaining in last Saturday’s game at North Carolina, Pittsburgh possessed the ball, with a new set of downs at their own 20-yard line, and a 13-point lead. The Tar Heels still had all of their timeouts, but if Pitt could move the ball, and pick up a couple critical first downs, it would burn some valuable time. Or better yet, they could score again, and end the game immediately. As we know now, though, neither of those two things happened. Pitt’s inability to move the ball during their final two drives is what cost them a massively important Coastal Division contest on the road in Chapel Hill.

Let’s take a second glance at what happened down the stretch.
