PITTSBURGH — After Pitt practice on Tuesday, senior middle linebacker Quintin Wirginis and senior right guard Connor Dintino spoke to the Pittsburgh media.
It will be the first time either Pitt senior starts in the game. Wirginis was a backup to Matt Galambos and sub-package and special teams contributor in 2016 and was suspended for the game at Penn State last year.
Dintino was a reserve defensive tackle and fullback before moving to offensive line for good in 2017, when he backed up center Jimmy Morrissey.
Both players talked about the importance of the game, the rivalry and their desire to make a mark as seniors.
