Pitt-Penn State football series to resume

Finally.

Pitt and Penn State will resume their once-storied football rivalry.

The only problem is, we have to wait until September 2016 for it to happen.

The wait will be worth it, however. If you're a fan of college football and you're from western Pennsylvania this series was the one to watch.

Some blame Penn State coach Joe Paterno for the end of the series in 2000.

I'm just glad it's back.

Do you think JoePa will be on the sidelines for the game in 2016?

There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
