It’s a decade plus long Pitt football tradition.
The phrase “Turn on the Victory Lights”, and the act, in which the university illuminates the sky by turning on the lights at the top of the historic Cathedral of Learning after a Panthers victory.
It’s something that has become popular among Pitt fans, players, coaches and Pitt alumni.

It looks now as though a fellow ACC school is a fan of using lights after a victory and will put their own spin on Pitt’s long-standing tradition.
The University of North Carolina has announced plans to light the Bell Tower blue after each Tar Heel victory.
We're excited to officially announce a new tradition starting this season.
After each football win, we're going to light the Bell Tower blue.
