Pitt Goes Back to Classic Uniforms Against Notre Dame



Pitt football.

The all-white uniforms that Pitt unveiled last week against Wake Forest were a divisive topic amongst Panther Nation, but that certainly will not be the case this week.

Pitt revealed its uniform combo against Notre Dame, featuring a classic road look. The Panthers will wear gold helmets with a Cathedral stripe and blue script, white jerseys and gold pants with the Cathedral stripe once again.

As Pitt tweeted, it’s a classic look against a classic opponent.

Pitt will travel to Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Ind. this weekend for a 3:30 p.m. kickoff, and for those who will not be in attendance, NBC and Peacock will have the broadcast.

Notre Dame has rebounded following a loss to Louisville a few weeks ago, knocking off USC and heading into the bye week, and the Fighting Irish sit at 6-2.

ND has handled Navy, Tennessee State, North Carolina State, Central Michigan, Duke and USC this season, tripping up against Louisville on the road and allowing Ohio State to walk off with a win at Notre Dame Stadium, as the Sam Hartman-led squad continues to roll.

Hartman, who has history with Pitt, has thrown for 1,838 yards and 18 touchdowns (to just three interceptions) on 64.5% completion this season — his sixth and final collegiate season. But it’s been Audric Estime, who has 787 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground, fueling the offense.

It going to be a Halloween weekend showdown and the first meeting since an ill-fated 45-3 loss at Heinz Field in 2020, but it will not be a revenge game for Phil Jurkovec.

Jurkovec, who originally committed to Notre Dame as a high schooler in 2018, transferred away from the Fighting Irish in 2020. He was — obviously — slated to take on the Irish for the second time since leaving, but it will now be Christian Veilleux’s third start.

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.

I hated the uniforms for the Wake Forest game. Hopefully they put those in the can.
