After 2019, the sPitt series is on hold until at least 2030. Damn, I'll be near 60 by then. :o

I may be in the minority, but I don't like the Pitt game. Just feel it's a no win situation for PSU. If they win, they were supposed to win and if they lose, then little brother proudly struts about. It's different if Pitt were a higher profile program, but just don't see the upside for PSU when Pitt's program is where it's been for the past 40 years.

That's the way I feel. With 9 conference games you only get a few shots at non-conference games. To have that be Pitt frequently is not what I'd want to see. I don't hate Pitt, I just think of them as "meh". The occasional series is fine. I like the VT, WVU and Auburn series coming up. Temple was on the schedule way too much but thankfully that seems to be over.

The only game on the schedule that I'm not wild about at all is Idaho next year. They were FBS when it was scheduled but they've since dropped back down to FCS. That game should be replaced by another team. If you remember in 2008 PSU was originally going to play Arkansas State but they dropped it instead to play the game with Oregon State. More of that please!
