The Canes were a year or two ahead of schedule, and the inexperience of being a heavy favorite and playoff contender finally caught up to them.
Freshman quarterback Kenny Pickett ran for two touchdowns and threw for another as Pittsburgh stunned the second-ranked Hurricanes 24-14.
Pitt (5-7, 3-5 ACC) sent shockwaves through the playoff situation.
Pickett completed 18 of 29 passes for 193 yards — while adding 60 yards rushing in his first career start.
Twitter reacts to everything, and with most people hating the turnover chain — most of the jokes focused on that.

Miami Florida just lost to Pitt but it will not affect their chances of making the playoffs. If Miami beats Clemson next week, a one loss ACC champ Miami will get into the playoffs.
