Pitt is currently entering its bye week, a crucial week of rest and recovery for its players and doubled-down recruiting for its coaches, but the Louisville week looms large.
It’s been a season in which Pitt has racked up primetime games, and Louisville will be no different. Pitt and Louisville will kick off at 8 p.m. at Cardinal Stadium in Louisville, Kentucky on Oct. 22.
For those not able to make the trip, the game will be broadcast on ACC Network, with a broadcast crew to be announced at a later date.
