Pitt's big game against Florida is today and as is custom, the Panthers will be playing pretty early. But hey, beats the alternative an at least we're into the weekend where more people can watch. Playing so early also means that Pitt will be the only game in town with Saint Louis and Louisville not getting underway until 2:45 p.m. Playing early also means that Pitt moves over from one of the smaller sister stations to CBS.
It'd be easier to feel a lot better about this game if it weren't in Florida. Pitt is playing well now while the Gators have been a little down. Anywhere else and you can bet that line would be a little lower.
Below is the pertinent game information for today.
