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.
