PITTSBURGH (AP) –

Broderick Snoddy ran for 82 yards and three touchdowns and Georgia Tech took advantage of six Pittsburgh turnovers in a 56-28 win on Saturday.

The Yellow Jackets (6-2, 3-2 ACC) ended a two-game losing streak by racing to a quick 28-0 lead, with each touchdown following a Panther fumble. Pitt (4-4, 2-2) gave the ball away on each of its first five possessions.

Justin Thomas passed for 147 yards and a touchdown and added 92 yards rushing and a score. Georgia Tech rolled up 615 total yards against the Panthers, who came in with the nation’s fourth-ranked defense. The 56 points put up by the Yellow Jackets are the most ever by an opponent at Heinz Field.

James Conner rushed for 119 yards and three scores for Pitt but the Panthers never drew closer than 14 after spotting the Yellow Jackets a four-touchdown advantage. Pitt had 518 yards of total offense but was never really in it on a day the school broke out its old script logo on the helmets, hoping to provide a boost.
