For the third consecutive season, “The City League Game” between Duquesne and Pitt won’t be played and that streak could go on for a while.
During a Zoom Call with local media on Tuesday, Duquesne head coach Keith Dambrot said that the game likely won’t be happening anytime soon and went on to say “I doubt if Pitt and Duquesne will play as long as Coach Capel and I are coaches. I’m not going to play at Pitt every year.”
The two programs have played 87 times since 1932, with Pitt leading the series, 55-32, winning 17 of the past 18 games. This is the longest stretch of the game not being played between city schools since 1940-52.
Our PSN Poll Question is, do you care that this longtime rivalry game isn’t being played?
