For the second week in a row, Pitt will face an old Big East opponent, in the ACC. Get an early look at them today.

Pitt took a tough loss to ACC Coastal opponent Virginia Tech on Thursday night. There’s not much time to dwell on it, though, as they will travel to Hard Rock Stadium in Miami to take on the Hurricanes a week from today. Before they do that, you can get a look at the Canes as they battle Notre Dame today.

Fortunately, with Pitt playing Thursday night, they get some rest and you can watch Miami. The Canes started off red hot under new head coach, Mark Richt, with a 4-0 record, but ran into two very rough losses to Florida State and North Carolina. That was followed by a throttling, at the hands of Virginia Tech. The Florida State game may have proven to be very costly, as they lost a few key players to injury after that emotional loss.

Regardless, you can see what they have for Pitt this afternoon, at 3:30 p.m. The Hurricanes travel to South Bend and the game will be nationally televised, on NBC. If the Canes can get back on track today, next week will become a very pivotal ACC Coastal game between Miami and Pitt, in the standings.
