Frank Victores-US PRESSWIRE
Lost in all the hoopla of Pitt basketball and Rutgers' potential move to the Big Ten is that the Panthers and Scarlet Knights actually have a football game on Saturday. I'd actually love to go to this game, but will be out of town.
We'll have a closer look at the game this week, of course, but Rutgers has always given the Panthers fits. But with Pitt's bowl hopes on the line, I expect a good effort at the very least - particularly after the UConn debacle a couple of weeks ago. Either way, will be interesting to see what kind of draw the game is. Many fans have moved on to basketball and with it being Thanksgiving weekend, a lot of folks may be away.
Below is the basic information for this weekend's game.
2012 records: Pitt (4-6) - Rutgers (9-1)
Date: Saturday, November 24th
Time: 12:00 p.m.
Place: Heinz Field (Pittsburgh)
Winning streak: One (Rutgers won the last game in 2011)
