Iowa, Pitt set for Big Ten-ACC matchup

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The similarities between Pittsburgh and Iowa have helped make their semi-regular series an exciting one.

The Hawkeyes (2-0) and Panthers (2-0) find themselves in much different spots heading into Saturday’s matchup at Kinnick Stadium.

Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz is one of the nation’s longest-tenured coaches. But Ferentz has shaken things up in his 17th season in Iowa City, with a new-look offense and fake field-goal tries in each of Iowa’s first two games.

Pitt has yet another new coach in Pat Narduzzi, who stymied Iowa and the rest of the Big Ten as the defensive coordinator at Michigan State.
