Once again, Pitt fans will have a perfectly timed opportunity to do some scouting of their next opponent. Right after Pitt is finished going toe-to-toe with Duke in a 12:30 p.m. kickoff, Panther fans can go over to WatchESPN (ESPN 3) to get a quick look at the team's next opponent - Virginia. Just like last week, Pitt's next opponent will be getting things started right as the Panthers are finishing up.
As most of us know, the Virginia Cavaliers will travel to Pitt next week to help the Panthers celebrate their first ACC homecoming game. Before they can do that, UVA will play host to the 1-2 VMI Keydets. The game will begin at 3:30 p.m. and be held on the campus of UVA in Charlottesville. Coming off a bye week, the Cavs are 1-1 with an impressive victory to open the season against the BYU Cougars. UVA then fell the following week 59-10 to No. 2 Oregon.
Can head coach Mike London rebound from a similar loss the Panthers suffered against Florida State? Tune in on Saturday on WatchESPN to find out and do a little scouting before Pitt and UVA tee it up for the first time since 2007. I was at that game and would like to forget about it. Maybe next weekend will give me that opportunity.
