Fan Vote - Greatest TD in Pitt History: Running Back Tony Dorsett, 1976 (53% of the vote)

Tony Dorsett's senior season is the gold standard for Pitt running backs. In 12 games, Dorsett rushed for 2,150 yards and 22 touchdowns. Over the final seven games of the 1976 season, as Pitt was charging toward the national championship, he averaged 215 yards rushing per game. Having finished fourth in the Heisman balloting as a junior in 1975, Dorsett became Pitt's first Heisman Trophy winner in 1976. He earned 701 of a possible 842 first-place votes for an overall total of 2,357 points, finishing far ahead of second-place finisher Ricky Bell of USC (1,346 points).
