Pitt’s game against Louisville at Heinz Field on Sept. 26 will kick off at noon and will be broadcast on ACC Network, the conference announced on Monday.
It will be Pitt’s second noon kick of the season and third time in three games that they’ll be broadcast on ACC Network, the league’s ESPN-fun stand-alone network that is not carried by major Pittsburgh-area cable provider Comcast.
Pitt is ranked No. 25 in the current AP Top 25, while the Cardinals are No. 18. The Panthers will host Syracuse this week while Louisville welcomes Miami to Cardinal Stadium.
ThiS Saturday will be Pitt’s first home game as a ranked team since Oct. 29, 2016, when they lost to North Carolina.
Should Pitt and Louisville also win this week, Pitt would be playing its first game between ranked opponents since losing to Utah on Sept. 2, 2010 and it would be the first game among ranked teams at Heinz Field since losing to No. 5 Cincinnati on Dec. 5, 2009.
