The University of Pittsburgh’s football team, the Pittsburgh Panthers, represented the University in the 2012 NCAA Division I FBS football championship. Paul Chryst, the team’s first-year coach, led it. They were part of the Big East Conference and played their home games at Heinz Field. The team moved to the ACC for the next season. The 2012 Pittsburgh Panthers football schedule features a game against Youngstown State on September 1. They also play Gardner-Webb on Sept. 1, and Notre Dame Nov. 3. The 2012 season will see the Panthers play in the Big East Conference. They will face Syracuse on Oct. 26 and Temple on Oct. 27. The last games of the regular season will be against Notre Dame on November 3.
The Pitt Panthers had a disappointing season last year after finishing fourth in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The team was missing one of its leading backs, Ray Graham, who had an injury-plagued season. Isaac Bennett had a great season, but Pitt still needs his services to get to the bowl. While Graham is cautious and feels good, the Panthers can afford to use him sparingly until he is ready to play. Although the team would prefer to avoid another injury, Ray Graham is still a good option.
The second half featured several key plays. Pitt’s offense went 77 yards on 15 plays, but the game was still close. Pittsburgh scored its touchdown on a fourth-and-seven play from the Panthers’ own 22. In the first half, Pittsburgh led 7-7 but the Guins scored late on a 15-play drive that covered 92 yards. They ended the quarter with a 14-yard TD pass to Will Shaw.
The schedule for the team has been released. You can also listen to a live broadcast on Pitt Panthers TV. In addition to football games, Panthers television will broadcast men’s basketball and women’s volleyball games. Live updates can be found on the official Twitter account of the team.
