Pitt vs. Syracuse: Open Gamethread

NCAA Football: Pittsburgh at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

It’s game day and the Panthers will host Syracuse today at Heinz Field.

As I’ve said this week, this is very clearly a crucial game for Pitt. Lose, and I think a lot of folks will write this year off completely. No, this isn’t going to be a cakewalk game by any means and a Pitt win probably will look like an upset. But the Panthers have so many challenging games still left and, dropping to 2-4 this year will make reaching even last year’s 5-7 mark very difficult.

Game time at 12:20 p.m. today. Join us here to comment live during the contest.
