Pitt vs. Temple: Open Gamethread

Andy Lyons

It's gameday, folks. Pitt takes on Temple in an intrastate Big East matchup, yet it doesn't seem like many people care all that much.

Here's the thing, though. You should care ... well, at least if you want Pitt to play in a bowl game. If Pitt loses this and drops to 3-5, with games still left against Notre Dame and Rutgers, things would be pretty difficult. The Panthers would need to win three out of their final four games to get to bowl-eligible status.

A win, though, brings the Panthers back to .500 and a reasonable chance to get to Birmingham a bowl game. Who you got in this one? Be sure to join us for the live gamethread and comment during the game as it happens. In the meantime, below are our Temple-related links from this week:
