For the second straight week, Pitt gets a night kickoff time. This time, though, it comes at home. The Panthers will host Notre Dame at 8:00 p.m. on ABC next Saturday at Heinz Field.
Based on what we've seen out of the Panthers the past two weeks, it figures to be a significant challenge for Pitt. Even though Notre Dame is a bit down this season, beating the Irish won't be an easy task. Still, with only a 38-34 win over Navy this past Saturday, Notre Dame doesn't have the look of an invincible team.
Should be a packed house since the game is officially a sell out. Pitt has stumbled the past two weeks, obviously, but it's still a game against Notre Dame and as long as the weather isn't horrible, should be a nice crowd.
But yeah, let's hope this game works out a lot better than the first home night game the team had this year against Florida State.
