With a 3:30 p.m. kickoff against Virginia set at Heinz Field Saturday, those watching from home will listen to ESPN’s crew of Beth Mowins and Kirk Morrison in the booth and Dawn Davenport on the field, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette‘s Johnny McGonigal reported.
The ESPN2 broadcast team for Pitt-Virginia at 3:30 on Saturday:
Beth Mowins (play-by-play)
Kirk Morrison (analyst)
Dawn Davenport (reporter)

Mowins will handle play-by-play duties, Morrison will provide color commentary and Davenport will serve as the sideline reporter. With a mid-afternoon kickoff on ESPN2 not drawing the higher-profile announcers, the broadcast crew may be unfamiliar to those who are not avid college football fans.
With some uncertainty surrounding UVA quarterback Brennan Armstrong’s status for Saturday’s game, Pitt opened as a double-digit favorite over the Cavaliers in betting lines. With a win over the Cavs, Pitt would clinch a spot in the ACC championship game against Wake Forest on Dec. 4.
