Pitt defeated Notre Dame at Heinz Field last night by a score of 27-22. Pitt improved their record to 9-1 overall. Pitt will play two conference opponents the last two games of the season to decide the Big East Conference champion. Pitt will play West Virginia next week and Cincinnati to close out the season. If Pitt can defeat Cincinnati they will win the Big East Conference and play in a major bowl game. Dave Wannstedt said the Panthers victory against Notre Dame was a good win but the team needs to look forward to West Virginia and focus on preparation during the week. Wannstedt said the reason Pitt was able to defeat Notre Dame was because of their preparation during the week.
