Another Saturday brings another Pitt football game. Today's test is a tough one as the Panthers go on the road to face the Virginia Tech Hokies. It won't be an easy game but as last year's test proved, any game is winnable.
I've made this point before, but I think it bears repeating. While Pitt has played a road game when they traveled to Duke, it's not the same as what they'll face at Virginia Tech. The atmosphere at the Blue Devils game wasn't anywhere near what it will be at Blacksburg and just as I was excited to see how all of the freshmen would react at Duke, I'll be watching that today, too.
Here's the game information for today:
Time: 12:00 p.m. (EST)
Where: Lane Stadium (Blacksburg, VA)
TV: ESPNU and WatchESPN (ESPN3)
Odds: Virginia Tech favored by nine points earlier this week
Pitt record: 3-1
Virginia Tech record: 5-1
