Pitt wraps up the regular season at home this weekend with a Friday afternoon Senior Day contest against Miami at Heinz Field. The Panthers host the Hurricanes at 3:30 p.m. in a national ABC broadcast. We ask that fans be in their seats a half hour before kickoff to celebrate our 18 seniors as they run through the tunnel at Heinz Field for a final time.
Season 3 winner of NBC's The Voice, Cassadee Pope will be performing at Stage AE beginning at 2 p.m. on Friday with admission free to the public. Doors at Stage AE will open at 12:30 p.m., and there will be food and drink specials available.
A schedule of gameday events, as well as some reminders are below. Please remember that the new bag policy is in effect and pay special consideration to the section on seat cushions.
