Greatest Combo in Pitt History - #PittTop10 (Week Three)

Top 10 Countdown - Week Three List

Fan Vote - Greatest Combo in Pitt History: Hugh Green and Rickey Jackson (34% of the vote)
Honorable Mention: Jeff Delaney and Bob Jury (33% of the vote)

Arguably the most devastating defensive end tandem in college football history, Hugh Green and Rickey Jackson ran roughshod over opponents during the 1979 and 1980 seasons. In Hollywood movie terms, this was the equivalent of having Darth Vader and the Predator on the same defense--there was simply no escape. As seniors in '80, the pair spearheaded the nation's No. 1 defense and combined for an incredible 260 tackles, 29 sacks and eight fumble recoveries.
