Pitt OL takes the reverse handoff for touchdown against VT

  Offensive lineman Brian O'Neill scored his second touchdown of the season Thursday night.

Pittsburgh offensive lineman Brian O'Neill probably didn't expect his number to be called as a playmaker too often heading into this season.

But with the Panthers implementing some unique play calls this year, the 300-pound offensive tackle now has his second touchdown of his career under his belt.

Three weeks after rumbling into the end zone on a designed screen against Georgia Tech, O'Neill scored again Thursday night against No. 25 Virginia Tech on a fourth quarter goal line reverse call that had him take the handoff from quarterback Nathan Peterman.

What a play call by the Pitt coaching staff and some nice execution by the Panthers' newest weapon.
