We've known Pitt's conference opponents for this year for a while, but didn't know the exact scheduling until now. Here's the 2015 schedule.

Sept. 5 Youngstown State

Sept. 12 at Akron

Sept. 19 at Iowa

Oct. 3 at Virginia Tech*

Oct. 10 Virginia*

Oct. 17 at Georgia Tech*

Oct. 24 at Syracuse*

Oct. 29 (Thurs.), North Carolina*

Nov. 7 Notre Dame

Nov. 14, at Duke*

Nov. 21, Louisville*

Nov. 27 (Fri.), Miami*

We'll have a game by game breakdown of the schedule later, but at first glance this schedule is tougher than last year. Pitt faces eight bowl teams from 2014, and starts five of its first seven games on the road. Pat Narduzzi will face three of Pitt's recent confusing loss demons right away in YSU, Akron, and Iowa. If he wins his first three games, Narduzzi will have already done something Paul Chryst never could.

However, Pitt also returns about 17 starters on both sides of the ball, and obviously returns the offensive trio of James Conner, Tyler Boyd, and Chad Voytik. If Narduzzi is able to shore up the defense, this team does have a great chance for success.
