Pat Narduzzi on Pittsburgh’s game-winning play: ‘I’d call it the Pitt Special’

Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi took a leaf out of the Philadelphia Eagles’ playbook to put their own spin on “The Philly Special” Saturday.

With time winding down and Pitt on the Central Florida 3-yard line on 4th-and-3, the Panthers had a direct snap go to running back A.J. Davis, who handed off to wide receiver Aaron Matthews, who flipped a touchdown pass to quarterback Kenny Pickett to give the team the tying score against No. 15 UCF.

Pitt converted the PAT for the lead with less than a minute to go and UCF was unable to rally, giving Pitt the 35-34 win.

“I’d call it the Pitt Special,” Narduzzi said of the trick play, which was similar to the Eagles’ big play in the Super Bowl two years ago.
