Former West Virginia Quarterback Describes the Difference Between WVU and Pitt

Morgantown, West Virginia – The 105th Edition of the Backyard Brawl featuring the West Virginia Mountaineers and the Pitt Panthers happens tonight at 7:00PM and the war of words between the two sides continues to heat up!

Earlier today, during an appearance on Pittsburgh radio station 93.7 The Fan, former West Virginia quarterback Rasheed Marshall described how different the two fanbases are.

“Pitt football is something people do on the weekend,” Marshall said. “When they’re bored and have nothing to do. West Virginia football is a way of life. Big difference.”

Marshall, a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native, played quarterback for the Mountaineers from 2001-2004, passing for 5,098 yards, 42 touchdowns and 23 interceptions during his career with the team. Marshall went on to play in the NFL for the San Francisco 49ers, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the St. Louis Rams.
