Pitt football team wins numerous awards after upset win over Clemson

Joshua S. Kelly-USA TODAY Sports

Pitt's football team is already moving on to Duke, but the rest of the nation is still talking about the Panthers' big win. On Monday, several members of the team won significant awards for their role in the game.

First, it all starts at the top. And in that regard, head coach Pat Narduzzi was named the Dodd Trophy Coach of the Week. Narduzzi was clearly deserving as he had the team ready to play and led the upset of the No. 2 team in the nation.

Quarterback Nathan Peterman had a pretty big hand in the win himself with his first-ever 300-yard game and five touchdowns. Peterman was not only named as the ACC's Offensive Back of the Week but also the Walter Camp Offensive Player of the Week.

Joining the quarterback in receiving an ACC honor was Chris Blewitt, who was the Specialist of the Week, and also Matt Galambos, Co-Linebacker of the Week.

And as if that wasn't enough, the entire team got in on the act as well. The Panthers were named as the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) Team of the Week.
