Tonight, Pitt steps into their first major challenge of the year - a road game against the Iowa Hawkeyes. As I said earlier this week, that's not a slight against the two teams the Panthers have faced, Youngstown State and Akron. But playing in a rough environment against a P5 opponent will present a different challenge.
Pitt also enters this one with a clear quarterback controversy and are still a little banged up with injuries to a few key players.
Below is the pertinent game day information for today's matchup.
