The Friday game will take place at the WVU Coliseum, where the Mountaineers have taken 26 out of 36 games against Pitt in the series. This will be the 188th matchup between the two programs, and West Virginia leads the all-time series 99-88. The last four contests have all gone West Virginia’s way, including a 2019-20 loss by 15 points at the Petersen Events Center.
Last season’s scheduled matchup was cancelled due to COVID. Back in October of 2020, the two schools extended the Backyard Brawl series through the 2023-24 seasons.
