With a primetime road game against No. 21 North Carolina on the slate this week, Pitt will be wearing its white jerseys again, along with gold helmets and blue pants.
The 8 p.m. showdown at Kenan Memorial Stadium in Chapel Hill, North Carolina will be broadcast on ACC Network for those not making the trip down south.

North Carolina has jumped out to a 6-1 start this season, the lone loss coming against Notre Dame in September, but the Tar Heels rattled off three straight ACC wins afterward — against Virginia Tech, Miami and Duke.
Drake Maye, North Carolina’s dark horse Heisman candidate at quarterback, has been one of the most prolific signal-callers in the nation, throwing for 2,200 yards and 27 touchdowns (with just three interceptions).
Pitt is 5-10 all-time against North Carolina, dating back to an inaugural 45-29 loss in Chapel Hill in 1974. The Tar Heels won six straight one-score games between 2013-18.
Pitt has won the last two meetings, however, both coming in overtime. Kenny Pickett threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns in the win.
The primetime game will feature on ACC Network, with a broadcast crew of Dave O’Brien (play-by-play), Tim Hasselback (analyst) and Kelsey Riggs (reporter).
