May 24, 2018 - 10:36 am

PITTSBURGH (Sportsradio 93.7 The Fan) - The Pitt Football Schedule just got a bit more exciting.

The program announcing they have a deal in place for a home-and-home series with the Wisconsin Badgers for the 2026 and 2027 seasons.

“In speaking with (Wisconsin Athletic Director and Burgettstown native) Barry Alvarez, we both felt this was a great scheduling opportunity,” Lyke said. “Despite our regional proximity, we’ve rarely played each other in football. It is a challenging and compelling non-conference game that our respective teams and fans can look forward to.” 

The first game will be played at Wisconsin on September 19th 2016 with the Panthers hosting the Badgers on September 11th 2017.

Pitt is 3-0 all time against Wisconsin, who are currently lead by former Pitt head coach Paul Chryst.
