Decision Made: Pitt vs. Clemson To Be Televised on ESPN



The Pitt Panthers will have another opportunity this weekend to showcase their program in front of a national audience.

It was announced late Saturday night that the Panthers game this Saturday against Clemson will be televised on ESPN. Kickoff from Heinz Field will take place at 3:30 PM.

Pitt will enter the game with an overall record of 5-1 and 2-0 in the ACC Coastal Division, while Clemson sits with a 4-2 record and 3-1 in the ACC Atlantic Division. Clemson currently trails both Wake Forest (4-0) and NC State (2-0).

Clemson is coming off a 17-14 win over Syracuse and is being led by their fast, talented defense. Offensively, they are struggling as they’ve only scored 20+ points twice this season (South Carolina State and NC State).

Pitt/Clemson Offensive Comparisons:
Total Yards Per Game:   Pitt 540 yards,    Clemson 334 yards
Passing Yards Per Game:  Pitt 358 yards,  Clemson 180 yards
Rushing Yards Per Game:   Pitt 172 yards,   Clemson 142 yards

Pitt needs to wear their normal Home Blue and Yellow uniforms for this game. Seems every time they are on national television they bring out a 3rd jersey option. The home uniforms are the best!
