Locked On Pitt: The Backyard Brawl Sells Out, What the Pitt-West Virginia Rivalry Means
Pitt and West Virginia, otherwise known as the Backyard Brawl, is officially sold out already. What does this mean for the rivalry as a whole? Just how excited should fans be to see the atmosphere as a whole for the game?
How does it affect Pitt from a brand perspective? Could the nationally televised nature of the game help Pitt springboard themselves into national prominence? How does it interject itself into the rest of Pitt’s schedules? Could it help recruiting?
Lastly, we talk about some of the stakes and the storylines of the game. How big is the storyline of Kedon Slovis and JT Daniels in the game? Could the crowd dynamics play a big role in the game? How big would a win be for either team?
What’s it do? Easy, it gives WV a forum for says how they were maligned by the ACC and should included, though they were dismissed because of their low academic standing. For Heather it sell tickets, period.
See you September 10th.
