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.

The Pitt women's basketball coaching staff accepted the Cold Water Challenge that has been passed around the country. The women's basketball community buzz for the viral videos was spurred by Niya Butts the head coach at Arizona who decided it would make an entertaining fundraiser for the Kay Yow Foundation.

Women's basketball programs across the country have issued challenges to colleagues, coaches, players and more to get cold water poured on their heads and keep the movement moving forward - so far it is estimated the campaign has reached over 31 million people on Twitter. Suzie McConnell-Serio and her staff were challenged multiple times for the #Chillin4Charity movement and they accepted in emphatic fashion.

Kay Yow was a pioneer in the women's game, compiling more than 700 wins at N.C. State and eight times earning national coach of the year honors. She died of breast cancer in 2009 and her foundation - the Kay Yow Cancer Fund founded in 2007 - looks not only to fund cancer research but also aid coaches to enrich their lives by serving others. McConnell-Serio has a special connection with Coach Yow having played for her as a member of the gold-medal winning team in Barcelona in 1992.
