Not only has Pitt been on the mend from a metaphorical stab wound in South Bend, but the Panthers (1-3, 4-5) are heading to Rentschler Field, the scene of a couple of their most ignominious games since Connecticut joined the Big East for football.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — I don’t mean to make out Saturday’s soggy series of events to be anything more than what they produced: an impressive victory over an unimpressive opponent.
