An old, but effective offense that can drive the modern college football fan insane will come to Pittsburgh a week from today. But before they do, you can get an early look at Georgia Tech tonight. The triple option offense looks easy enough to defend, but as Navy and now Georgia Tech have shown fans across the country, it is much easier said then done.

You know the run is coming, but you don't know where and then there is the off chance they could put the ball in the air for a big play. It is a confusing offense to watch, but mostly because as a fan, you can only think to yourself, "this can't be that hard to stop!" Well, it is ... so why not get an early look at it before the Yellow Jackets come to Heinz Field in a week? With the Panthers tangling with Virginia Tech early in the week, you can do just that this evening.

The 5-1 (2-1 in the ACC) Ramblin Wreck from Georgia Tech look to bounce back tonight against the North Carolina Tar Heels (2-4 and 0-2 in the ACC) on Tobacco Road. Paul Johnson's club finally climbed into the Top 25 before losing to a solid Duke team last week, 31-25 for their first loss. The game will kickoff at :00 p.m. tonight and you can watch it live on ESPNU at UNC's Kenan Stadium. Get an early look, so that maybe you will understand why Pitt's defense is playing the scheme they will against a top ten rushing attack in the country.
