Pitt-Notre Dame Scheduled for Halloween Weekend in 2023

Published

on

If you’re going to the Pitt-Notre Dame matchup this season, you may need to bring a costume. It will be Halloween weekend after all.

Pitt-Notre Dame has been set for a Saturday, Oct. 28 matchup at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend. A kickoff time, television network and broadcast crew will be announced at a later date.

It won’t just be a Halloween weekend showdown and the first meeting since an ill-fated 45-3 loss at Heinz Field in 2020, it will be a revenge game for new quarterback Phil Jurkovec.

Jurkovec, who originally committed to Notre Dame as a high schooler in 2018, transferred away from the Fighting Irish in 2020. It will be his second time facing ND, previously having done so at Boston College in 2020, and his last opportunity to bring home a win.

Pitt heads into the matchup on a three-game losing streak dating back to 2015 — with only one win dating back to 2013: a 28-21 win in 2013.

Pitt is 21-48 all-time against Notre Dame, having played the Fighting Irish since 1930. It’s been skewed in ND’s direction since the inaugural matchup, but there’s no time like the present.

With the Notre Dame matchup decided, all four of Pitt’s 2023 non-conference games have been set on the calendar.

Pitt will open its scheduled against Wofford on Sept. 2 and Cincinnati on Sept. 9, both at Acrisure Stadium, before heading to Morgantown for the Backyard Brawl against West Virginia on Sept. 16.

The ACC schedule will be released later this year.

This is a honored rivalry dating back to 1909 and played 70 times. Happy’ to see the return along with WVU. Since PSU only wants to play cup cakes at home with a current coach who wants to be like Joe, they have become an ice cream novelty. Who needs them anyhow, that place is an ongoing crime scene. Beat Notre Dame H2P

A new study shows Penn State has the highest on-campus violent crime rates in Pennsylvania. Maybe if these snow cone freaks would stop gawking at the Joe Pa statue, the crime rate might be lower, but probably not.

show me the study or it didn’t happen..I see if CJF wants to implement the pitt way of dealing with violent crimes (like woman beating) by just lifting heavier for a week.

I love how an ND/pitt announcement turns to PSU talk. Penn State still lives rent free and sorry Denny but PSU doesn’t think one second about little brother.
CJF needs to focus on his out of conference schedule with WVU (easy win)…Delaware and UMass will be tough, but I think Penn State pulls through

You think ND calls this a rivalry Dennis?

Sure, so from what I have read – no one in the BIG10 sees PSU as a rival, but a mere hurdle. Even the gophers vomit at the thought of having to play them.

“PSPEw” is a new one. A for effort, but not that good Giovanni. C’mon, I’ve seen your slanderous posts prior to this. You can do way better.

ND doesn’t think of pitt ever (except when they come in and take your recruits). If you need me to give you their true rivals I will certainly publish them for you.

Well, jane your pitt education shines through again. I didn’t ask if what your daughter’s degrees are in. I asked a simple question, which I will pose once more. Is English your second language. If this doesn’t make sense, you might want to show it to one of your English savant daughters.
I’m also an adult so don’t use emoji’s. could you clarify what that pic is?

Jane is right and you are always wrong. Isn’t it time for your root beer float at Franklin Snow Cone Palace?

Dennis, are you somehow related to the emoji queen? Her lack of football knowledge and spelling errors make it hard to take her seriously but I do give her an A for effort in following me!

We respect Notre Dame, same can’t be said for WV and PS. The ACC usurped our annual meeting now it occurs occasionally.
Never want to renew the WV contract nor PS.

sure you don’t. All you speak of is PSU. Look at it this way, if you had WVU and PSU yearly you would at least put some fans in the Steelers stadium

Leader in violent on campus crimes and the worst criminal cover up in college football history. It’s time to stop ignoring the facts.

Where is the data to back your lies? Michigan was the worst cover up in college football history, with a close second being the Hayes woman beating (penalty for beating women at pitt is to just lift a big heavier and longer for a week)

Rape of any kind is abhorrent. Did you read the Michigan story?

PSU is a scar on education, and so is Bozo Franklin.
