The Panthers’ remaining 2017 non-league schedule is as follows:

9/2 – Youngstown State
9/9 – at Penn State

    Rice was scheduled to play at Houston on September 30, 2017. Apparently Rice at Houston was moved to September 16, 2017, per http://www.riceowls.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/011216aaa.html

    Agreed…that’s a pretty solid schedule. Two P5 opponents OOC…ONLY four games out of PA. Good job by Pitt’s AD.

    I would love to see PITT keep Pen State and go with West Virginia and Ohio State as their noon conference games; tri state matchups and good teams could really improve their strength of schedule with the other ACC teams

      I would love to see Pitt in the B1G. If not, then more games with Ohio State. We played often in the past. It would be a great regional matchup to revive the series.

    I agree playing regional powers is good for recruiting and for a traveling
    fan base.
