Pitt opens up the ACC home schedule by welcoming Clemson to The Pete tomorrow afternoon. See our predictions here.

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Pitt is coming off a 1-1 road trip to kick off ACC play, where their first two contests took place on the road. Now, the Panthers will come home to debut in front of The Oakland Zoo tomorrow with an 11-4 overall record and 1-1 in the conference. Clemson will be the opponent and they are coming off a rough loss to Louisville on the road, which dropped the Tigers to 8-6 and 0-2 in the ACC.

Brad Brownell will lead the Tigers into tomorrow afternoon's game with some bad losses on the season. Clemson also has seen their team battle some highly ranked teams tough, as mentioned earlier with Louisville and in overtime against Arkansas. The Tigers will test Pitt down low as they have been very tough on the boards so far this season, ranking 83rd in the country.

You can catch the game locally on Root Sports tomorrow at noon. If you don't live in Pittsburgh, check your local listings for information (it will also be on WatchESPN/ESPN3) live from The Pete. The Panthers struggled at home last season and the students will be looking to make a statement to the rest of the conference that there is a reason Big East teams feared coming into town.

Below are the official picks for the game and we all seem to be in agreement this week. Comment below to let us know if you agree or disagree with all of us sticking with the Panthers for this game.

Anson (4-2): Pitt

Chris (4-2): Pitt

Jim (4-2): Pitt

Aron (3-3): Pitt

JD (3-3): Pitt

Stephen (3-3): Pitt
