Pitt had just one noon kickoff last season, the season finale against Duke, but that’s a thing of the past now. Pitt will open the 2024-25 season with back-to-back noon kickoffs.

The ACC released a cluster of schedules Thursday afternoon, and we now know the kickoff time and network for the first four games — plus the lone Thursday night kickoff.

Pitt will start the season with a noon kickoff against Kent State on Saturday, Aug. 31. The game will be broadcast on ESPNU. A rematch of last season’s Pitt-Cincinnati game will take place Saturday, Sept. 7 at Nippert Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio at noon. It’s an ESPN/ESPN2 broadcast.

The Backyard Brawl will be played in the afternoon for the first time since the series resumed. The Brawl will kick off at Acrisure Stadium at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14, with an ESPN/ESPN2 broadcast. It’s somewhat of a doubleheader as the Pittsburgh Pirates play at 6:40 p.m. that evening, which will leave the North Shore very busy.

Pitt will conclude its non-conference slate with a 3:30 p.m. kickoff against Youngstown State on Saturday, Sept. 21. The matchup will be broadcast on ACC Network.
