Pitt kicker Chris Blewitt misses potential game-winning FG, makes the joke okay

New, comments

Yes. His last name is Blewitt. And Pitt lost because he missed this field goal. He ... (sigh) blew it.

Chris Blewitt is a kicker for Pitt. He is a very good kicker, most of the time! He was 9 of 10 on kicking attempts this year, with his only miss a 38-yarder blocked against Virginia Tech. However, his last name is "Blewitt," which leads to things like skits on Jimmy Kimmel about his last name. He had a 26-yarder to potentially win the game against Duke, and ... he ...

He blew it.


(This is just a sampling of the many Blewitt jokes. There were thousands. We just grabbed from the middle.)

Pitt would lose 51-48 in double overtime, which it could've avoided had Blewitt hit the kick.
