When Louisville takes the field against Pitt on Saturday morning, they’ll try to snap a 4-game losing streak – their longest to any current opponent. The Cardinals will bring their #19 ranking into Heinz Field during homecoming weekend and the Panthers have found themselves with their backs squarely against the wall. After taking a surprising loss to Syracuse Friday night, Pitt stands 2-3 on the year and are fighting for their bowl-game life. Meanwhile Louisville looks to finally put a full game together and remain undefeated at 6-0.
