Pitt Football Schedule What To Know: Who do the Panthers miss from the ACC slate?
There’s no Clemson, and there’s no NC State. That’s a good start, and not having to play Miami might be a huge deal. However, it’s not all good with Georgia Tech and Virginia – two of the teams likely to be rebooting a bit this year – not on the slate.
