Pitt will square off against No. 14 Louisville at Acrisure Stadium Saturday, with kickoff scheduled for 6:30 p.m., and the broadcast crews have been revealed for the conference clash.

The ACC Network will once again be on the call for Pitt’s game this weekend, matching up with Virginia Tech, and Tom Werme will handle play-by-play duties, James Bates will serve as his analyst and Treavor Scales will report from the sideline.

Bill Hillgrove will return to the booth for 93.7 The Fan, with Pat Bostick serving as his analyst while Larry Richert and Dorin Dickerson will report from the field. Jeff Hathhorn, who has filled in for Hillgrove a couple of times earlier this season,

Louisville is the only ACC team currently sitting at 6-0, with wins over Georgia Tech, Boston College and North Carolina State in conference, and now, a big top-10 win over the Fighting Irish, it’s a Cardinals’ squad that suddenly in the conference mix.

It’s head coach Jeff Brohm’s first season as the Cardinals head coach, and former Purdue and Cal quarterback Jack Plummer has gotten off to a strong start this season — throwing for 1,550 yards and 12 touchdowns — but it’s Jawhar Jordan who leads the ACC in rushing, and he racked up 143 yards and two scores against Notre Dame.

Pitt has not been good in stopping the run at times this season, and that was on display against Virginia Tech over the weekend, so it will be a tough test for the Panthers.

Pitt is 10-9 all-time against Louisville, dating back to a 27-6 win in the first meeting in 1976. It’s been a series of runs all-time. Pitt won the first four meetings; Louisville won the next seven meetings between 1990-2007 and Pitt has won six of the last eight meetings.

Pitt won the second most recent matchup 23-20 in 2020, a performance in which Kenny Pickett threw for 220 yards and two touchdowns and the defense forced three Cunningham interceptions. But Louisville won last season’s matchup in Louisville off a poor performance from Kedon Slovis.

Louisville currently sits at the top of the conference while Pitt sits at the bottom, only ahead of Virginia, which is due to the fact UVa has lost five games to Pitt’s four. With an extra game played.

Louisville now is firmly in the mix, as the Cardinals have three ACC wins, with Florida State, North Carolina and Duke at the top of the conference.

Pitt has already lost to UNC, and FSU and Duke are still on the schedule in the month of November, but there’s a serious opportunity to come with the Cardinals. And it will come in Christian Veilleux’s first start at Pitt.
