Pitt vs. UConn 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

UConn tries to grab its first Big East win when it welcomes Pittsburgh to Storrs on Friday.


The Pittsburgh Panthers will aim to bolster their shot at bowl eligibility with a win in a key Big East showdown against the Connecticut Huskies. The teams face off in Friday night primetime action from Storrs.

The Huskies welcome a Panthers team coming off a triple-overtime loss to the BCS No. 4 Notre Dame Fighting Irish, where Ray Graham's 172 yards and one score proved to be too little against the undefeated Irish.

Connecticut is in the midst of a four-game losing streak, most recently dropping a close one to the South Florida Bulls, 13-6.

Huskies quarterback Chandler Whitmer's 284 yards against the Bulls' defense was not enough, as UConn fell to 0-4 in conference play.

The 4-5 Panthers, 1-3 in Big East play, will play the Bulls and the No. 23 Rutgers Scarlet Knights before the end of the season. Pittsburgh will aim for the six-win threshold to help the Big East get as many teams bowl-eligible as possible.

Date and Time: Friday, Nov. 9, 8 p.m. ET

Location: Rentschler Field, Storrs, Conn.


Odds: Pittsburgh is a 3.5-point favorite
