Syracuse football, Pittsburgh to play at 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 22

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse and Pittsburgh will start at 3:30 p.m. at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh on Nov. 22, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced in a press release Monday morning. The release also announced that the game will be aired on ESPNU.The game will come a week after an SU bye week and two weeks after the Orange was eliminated from bowl contention against then-No. 22 Duke in the Carrier Dome. The most Syracuse can do is win its last two games and finish with five wins, which will not qualify the team for postseason play.The Panthers most recently suffered a double-overtime, 51-48 loss to Duke on Nov. 1, and rested while SU faced the Blue Devils this past week. Pittsburgh is currently 4-5 with a 2-3 record in the ACC and will need two of its last three games — against North Carolina, Syracuse and Miami — to qualify for a bowl.The last time Syracuse and Pitt played was in the Carrier Dome on Nov. 23 of last season, meeting for the first time as ACC football opponents after years in the Big East. The Panthers won that game 17-16 before the Orange salvaged a bowl berth with a 34-31 win over Boston College a week later, and there will be no such drama this time around.
