Pittsburgh Panthers at (13) Penn State Nittany Lions NCAA Football Matchup

Although youth keeps them from fully appreciating their programs’ shared past, these Penn State and Pittsburgh players could occupy a significant place in the rivalry’s history.

The game Saturday between the No. 13 Nittany Lions (2-0) and Panthers (1-1) will be the 100th meeting in the intrastate series that began in 1893. It ran from 1900-31 and 1935-1992 before becoming a four-game series in the late 90s.

But their fourth meeting since 2016 could be the last, for the foreseeable future.

Pitt athletic director Heather Lyke asked the Nittany Lions in 2017 about extending the series, but Penn State declined. That’s in part because of less flexibility with a schedule that includes nine Big Ten conference games. The Panthers play just eight in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Spread: Penn State -17½
Moneyline: Penn State -1000
Total O/U: 53

TIME & DATE: 12:00 PM ET, Saturday, September 14, 2019
