Greatest Touchdown in Pitt History - #PittTop10 (Week One)

Top 10 Countdown - Week One List

Fan Vote - Greatest TD in Pitt History: Jan. 21, 1982 "Marino to Brown" (40% of the vote)

Fourth and 5. Forty-two seconds left. Pitt trails Georgia, 20-17, in the 1982 Sugar Bowl. Coach Jackie Sherrill calls a timeout to discuss field goal and - in the pre-overtime era - leaving the Superdome with a tie. But, as junior quarterback Dan Marino would say later, "If there is any time at all on the clock, then there is enough time for us to win." The end result is one of the most dramatic endings in college bowl game history. Two things about this play never cease to amaze: the perfect trajectory of Dan Marino's winning 33-yard TD pass and John Brown's phenomenal effort to hold onto the ball despite taking a vicious hit from the Georgia safety. As he landed in the end zone, Brown recalled thinking, "Hey, do you know what you just did?" Score the most legendary touchdown in Pitt history, that's what.

As the Pitt football team prepares for its first season in the ACC, many Panther fans would select a legendary quarterback wearing No. 13 to receive an extra year of eligibility and be under center next fall if they had their wish.

We asked fans this week if they could select any former Pitt student-athlete to earn another year of eligibility to suit up for the Panthers, who would it be? Dan Marino was a popular pick for Pitt fans.
