Panthers to host eight games at Heinz Field

Under the new direction of head coach Todd Graham, the Pitt football team will host eight games at Heinz Field this fall, including five home contests against teams that advanced to bowls this past season.

Dates for the non-conference portion of the Panthers’ 2011 schedule have been finalized, while the Big East slate will be announced next month. Pitt’s non-league schedule is as follows:

Sat, Sep. 3  Buffalo, TBA
Sat, Sep. 10 Maine, TBA
Sat, Sep. 17 at Iowa, TBA
Sat, Sep. 24 Notre Dame, TBA

The Panthers’ home Big East opponents are Cincinnati, Connecticut, Syracuse and USF. Pitt will play road conference games at Louisville, Rutgers and West Virginia.

In total, the Panthers will face eight teams that advanced to the 2010 postseason.

Graham comes to Pitt after a highly successful head coaching tenure at Tulsa, where in four years he had three 10-win campaigns and three bowl victories. He compiled a 36-17 overall record with the Golden Hurricane, including a 10-3 mark last year highlighted by a 28-27 victory at Notre Dame and decisive 62-35 win over 24th-ranked Hawai’i in the Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl.

Pitt finished with an 8-5 overall record in 2010 and earned a share of the Big East championship with a 5-2 league mark. The Panthers closed the campaign with a 27-10 victory over Kentucky in the BBVA Compass Bowl.

The annual Blue-Gold Spring Game will be held at Heinz Field on April 16. Additional details will be announced at a later date.
