The Pittsburgh Panthers are riding high after two straight ACC victories to get themselves bowl-eligible. With that momentum and the potential stakes for the Miami Hurricanes, the game will be televised on prime time. The Kickoff is set for the 8 PM kickoff on the ACC Network.

This game will be a senior day game for the Miami Hurricanes who are still fighting for bowl eligibility over the next two weeks. The road will not be easy for the Hurricanes as they will face off against the Clemson Tigers on the road before finishing out the season against Pitt which Miami will potentially be playing for their postseason lives.

For Pittsburgh, it will be all about continuing the momentum to salvage a somewhat respectable season. With Duke and Miami left to go before the bowl game, ending the season with nine wins will restore some sense of accomplishment within the program even though they fell short of the lofty preseason goals.

To end the season Pittsburgh will have played 6 of their 12 games on the season in the night time slot. While all games in ACC play will be aired on the ACC Network by the time the season comes to a close.
