Coming off their biggest win of the season, a 28-21 win over Notre Dame, things don’t get easier for the Pitt Panthers as the North Carolina Tar Heels pay their first visit to the city of Pittsburgh since 2000.
It’s a big ACC game for both teams as the Panthers can earn their sixth victory of the season and bowl eligibility by defeating the resurgent Tar Heels.
The Tar Heels on the other hand have bounced back from a 1-5 start with three consecutive victories, including a 45-14 thumping of Virginia last week.
This will be a tough test for both teams.
Who has the advantage?
