Many Hokie fans hate playing in Pittsburgh because our luck rarely seems good there, so we're happy to have you at home this year. Both teams have a lot riding here and it's not going to matter where the game is.
My grandfather is a Pitt grad from about 1919. He claimed he played in a foot of snow, but I don't believe he was ever even on the team. But who cares? I still have a blue Pitt sweatshirt from the 70's sometime. He was still into watching then.
