Perhaps one of the greatest comebacks in Pitt football history came in the 1970 edition of the Backyard Brawl when Pitt came back from a 35-8 halftime deficit to beat the Bobby Bowden-led Mountaineers 36-35.

The quarterback of that Pitt team was Dave Havern and he joined Seibel and Starkey on Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN Monday to talk about that come from behind victory.

Dave said the stadium just about cleared out at halftime, including his own Dad, who had to be brought back to the stadium when Pitt began their comeback.

Dave also discussed several other key story lines from that game.
