According to multiple reports from fans and media outlets, fans of the Mountaineers far out-number Pitt fans in downtown Pittsburgh where the game will be held. Although this is technically a “home game” for Pitt, it looks like West Virginia has essentially brought Morgantown North for the night!
It’s going to be a loud and rowdy game in Pittsburgh tonight! LET’S GO MOUNTAINEERS!
