Pitt Featured In Several "Big East Games To Watch"

Athlon released their top 15 Big East games to watch and, unsurprisingly, the Panthers showed up on the list several times.

The biggest game involving Pitt according to site was their contest against Louisville, which ranked fourth. Pitt's games against South Florida (5th), Rutgers (8th), Cincinnati (11th), and Notre Dame (14th) also made the cut.

I was a bit surprised that the Notre Dame contest made the list while Pitt's clash against Virginia Tech did not. Also, while the game against the Bearcats might not be all that must-see according to Athlon, there's no real way to state just how big it is.

Typically, conference games come after a handful of warmup games and maybe a non-conference challenge or two. But Pitt will get Cincinnati after only a game against Youngstown State. That's better than the Bearcats who won't have even played a single game to that point, but it's going to be a huge matchup to say the least.
