How To Watch: Pitt Travels to Western Michigan to Open Road Slate



KALAMAZOO, Mi. — It’s not only the home opener for Western Michigan at Waldo Stadium Saturday night, it’s the chance to prove that last season’s win at what-was-then Heinz Field wasn’t a fluke.

Despite a new quarterback under center — in the form of Norwin’s own Jack Salopek — for Western Michigan, with Pitt’s quarterback uncertainty entering the game, WMU is only a 10-point underdog against Pitt.

With a loss against Tennessee last week, despite the uncertainty under center, a bounce-back performance against Western Michigan is a priority this week. And Pat Narduzzi’s crew is not underestimating its MAC opponent this week. Not after last season.

West Michigan opened its 2022 season with a pair of road games, a loss against Western Michigan and a win over Ball State. The Broncos will host Pitt at Waldo Stadium for this season’s home-opener — a location where the Broncos went 4-2 last season.

Pitt has only played Western Michigan once in its history, last season’s 44-41 loss, so this season’s matchup is the only chance to tie the series since there are no games scheduled against WMU in the future — at this point.
