7pm on ESPN.
Dave O’Brien and Doris Burke are the announcing crew, so it’s going to be all about the game.
You may have heard and will hear something about that 9-0 versus top-5 teams at the Pete. So that’s out there.
There’s also the fact that the last time Syracuse beat Pitt at the Pete was 10 years ago in a 48-45 mess of a game.
Questions abound on the overall health of the team. How severe is Lamar Patterson’s thumb injury, really? How is Talib Zanna’s ankle?
This will be the fourth straight game versus ACC teams that play at a slower tempo than Pitt. ACC purists can complain all they want about the change to their conference, but the slower tempo is really being driven by their own teams not Pitt and Syracuse.
