  For the first time in nearly two decades, "College GameDay" is coming to Pittsburgh. Pitt announced Thursday the popular ESPN college football preview show will originate from the North Shore for the Panthers' Sept. 1 showdown with rival West Virginia at Acrisure Stadium. It marks the first time the show has set up shop here - or any Pitt game for that matter - since Sept. 3, 2005, when the Panthers dropped a 42-21 home decision against Notre Dame. And it will be the third time the Panthers have served as hosts overall. The show also appeared here when Pitt upset Virginia Tech - ranked No. 5 at the time - in November 2003.

West Virginia has played host to GameDay twice previously but never for a Backyard Brawl. The Mountaineers last played in a game highlighted by the show in 2017, when they dropped a 31-24 decision against No. 8 TCU in Fort Worth, Texas. "It's a great opportunity for our program," said Pitt's Deslin Alexandre at ACC media day Thursday. "Being a college football player, a lot of us have that same goal of playing on 'College GameDay.' I'm excited for us and for our program...That's a huge stage. And we're excited to win that game." - Pittsburgh Post Gazette
