Featured Fanpost: A couple of fun ACC-Pitt related facts

I wanted to do a fanshot, not a post for this, but there's no image or what not to share. So here we go, these are "firsts" in Pittsburgh Panthers history, there's only two that have ACC ties..but here ya go.

First:

First nation-wide television broadcast of a live sporting event, a football game against Duke at Pitt Stadium, was televised coast-to-coast by NBC on September 29, 1951.

and

First African-American player, Bobby Grier, to break the bowl game color barrier in the segregated, southeastern Deep South during the 1956 Sugar Bowl.

That game was against Georgia Tech. The governor of Georgia tried to get it stopped. One other fun fact? It happened one month after Rosa Parks' famous bus ride.

Just thought this was fun and people might enjoy little tidbits like this.
