Mike Asti of West Virginia Sports Now joins the show to discuss Pitt and West Virginia. With J.T. Daniels now being named the starting quarterback, what does that mean for West Virginia? Does Pitt have the better quarterback in Kedon Slovis?
Then, we talk about some of the familiarities of the rivalry returning. What are the atmospheres on both campuses like leading up to the game? Does it feel as big as it should? What might Acrisure Stadium look on Thursday night and before it?
Finally, we go over what makes the Backyard Brawl one college football’s best rivalries. While it is a hidden relic in an age where regional rivalries in college football are going away, what makes it so special even now? Why is there such a magic to it?
