The much anticipated Backyard Brawl will have some Pitt representation in the broadcast booth.
Former Pitt safety Louis Riddick will team with Matt Barrie and Harry Lyles, Jr. for the call of Pitt vs. West Virginia on ESPN at Acrisure Stadium.
Riddick is one of the most respected voices in the NFL and is a part of various shows on ESPN’s various programming.
The 53-year old Riddick played at Pitt from 1987-90 before getting selected in the 9th round of the 1991 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers.
Despite covering the NFL, Riddick has remained close to the Pitt program and hasn’t been afraid to express his passion for Pitt.
