Small note here, but the game time for Pitt's football game in a few weeks against Duke was recently announced. The game on September 21st against the Blue Devils will have a 12:30 p.m. start time and will be on ESPN3.
We all hate the early start times, obviously. But hey, at least it's a road game.
And yeah, that road game by the way, is the first one of the season for Pitt. We'll get more into it when game week approaches, obviously, but that will be a good test for Pitt. We can talk all we want about beating New Mexico, but as I said before, we really won't know much about the Panthers if they win that game.
Duke may not be world beaters, but at 6-6, they weren't the perennial doormats they typically have been. They're 2-0 this season (admittedly against some weaker competition), but a road game there will be a good test for Pitt.
