Chris Blewitt, Brian O'Neill win ACC awards for play against Georgia Tech

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Pitt's football team pulled out a narrow win over Georgia Tech on Saturday and a couple of Panthers were later recognized by the ACC for their play in the game.

Senior kicker Chris Blewitt was named the ACC Specialist of the Week. He had a career-high 13 points on three field goals and four PATs. And while his last field goal (a 31-yarder to win the game as time expired) was a close call, he didn't miss a single kick all day long.

Offensive tackle Brian O'Neill provided protection for quarterback Nathan Peterman and helped Pitt to 407 yards of total offense. His big moment, of course, was the trick play he had, catching a pass and scoring a touchdown. For his efforts, he was the Conference's Offensive Lineman of the Week.

For Blewitt, it was his third time winning the award while it was the first such honor for O'Neill.
