Poll: Should Pitt Schedule West Virginia in 2020?

Poll: Should Pitt Schedule West Virginia in 2020?

Should we see the revival of the Backyard Brawl in 2020?

The ACC announced on Wednesday that each team will play 10 conference games and one non-conference game during a modified 2020 schedule.

The question now is who will that one non-conference opponent be?

Our Alan Saunders is reporting that Miami, Ohio is a possibility, as the two programs were already scheduled to play.

Here’s a hypothetical, why not try and schedule a game with West Virginia? The Mountaineers have lost their two big non-conference games against Florida State and Maryland. The two long-time rivals are scheduled to resume The Backyard Brawl in 2022, why not get a game in earlier than originally scheduled?

One of the obvious issues for Pitt would be adding another quality opponent to a now very challenging conference schedule of Clemson, Notre Dame, Miami (FL), Florida State and Virginia Tech.

Our PSN Poll Question is, if it’s possible, would you like to see Pitt schedule West Virginia this season as their one non-conference game?

Should Pitt Schedule WVU in 2020?

I’d love to hear the reasons for anybody who voted no. We already got F’d by the ACC so why not add a rivalry game. It would be ratings gold when/if there is a season. Also minimal travel for either school.

This is our best returning team (on paper) in about 10 years. So why not play them now!

On defense, yes. Certainly not on offense.

Defenses win championships, lol. Especially with a limited practice schedule. We do have an experienced QB and most of our mediocre OL and RBs Returning.

Usually I would say yes…. But have folks looked, at our modified acc schedule? No way this year. They need a win with the non conference game. The acc schedule is brutal. Miami, FL state. Clemson and notre dame… Add in other coastal teams who are improving. Great games. But going to be really tough to win them all!

And no fans anyway in the stadium most likely. so that reason doesn’t work this year either. Start in 2021 and keep it going.

You must have been a huge WaHa fan and your middle name must be Mediocrity.
