Pitt Vs. Rutgers

Pitt plays host to Rutgers today in its second Big East conference game of the season. Both teams are coming off a win - Pitt vs. Syracuse and Rutgers vs. Army - but Rutgers will have injured player Eric LeGrand on their mind when they travel to Heinz Field. The game is the Big East Game of the Week.

Pitt has had a lot of trouble with Rutgers. Last year was the first time the team beat the Scarlet Knights since 2004. The offense faces a pretty tough Rutgers defense that ranks in the top 20 in scoring defense, passing defense, and total defense.
