We’re going to be so bored on Saturday, but the college football stage belongs to Boston College on Friday as Pittsburgh gameday has come early.
Under the lights at Alumni Stadium, the Eagles will have their 2014 home and ACC openers against the Panthers in the teams’ first meeting since they were both in the Big East back in the day.
It’s like a low-intensity version of Thunderdome: two will enter 1-0, one will leave 2-0.
Your gameday info is as follows:
