With a week off to rest and recuperate after a 52-21 win over Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh gets a Virginia Tech team that allowed No. 14 Notre Dame to escape with a walk-off field goal on Saturday. A 3:30 p.m. kickoff at Lane Stadium promises to be a tough environment for Pitt.
Early betting lines from Circa Sports are too close to call, with the game classified as a “pick’em” or toss-up, and the over/under is set at 53.5 points. However, the major betting sites lean slightly in Pitt’s favor.
