Pitt will host Virginia Tech tomorrow afternoon in the hopes of getting back to .500 in ACC play and, in the long term, getting back to Charlotte, N.C. for the conference championship.
Virginia Tech is making the trip to Pittsburgh for the first time since 2020, after hosting Pitt at Lane Stadium in Blacksburg, Va. last season. It’s an afternoon game in which Pitt is wearing its traditional gold helmet, blue jersey and gold pants uniform, coming off the ‘Roc the Royal’ weekend against Georgia Tech.
Pitt opened as a two-touchdown favorite over a Virginia Tech squad that has dropped back-to-back games by at least three touchdowns.

Virginia Tech has started the 2022 season slowly, losing to Old Dominion to open the season and dropping contests to West Virginia (33-10) and North Carolina (41-10) over the last two weeks.
With a 2-3 record, beating Boston College and Wofford this season, it’s clearly a rebuilding year for first-year head coach Brent Pry in Blacksburg, Virginia.
Pitt is 10-11 all-time against Virginia Tech, dating back to an inaugural meeting in 1993. VT won the first four matchups and seven of the first eight matchups. The two sides have met every season for the last 10 years, with Pitt winning six of the 10 matchups. Pitt won 47-14 in 2020 and 28-7 in 2021.
