GAMEDAY: Pitt vs. Gardner-Webb

Written by Sam Werner on .


Happy Saturday, everyone. We're just about two hours away from Pitt vs. Gardner-Webb. A couple of pre-game updates as you enjoy the noon games (or tailgate for this one).

- It's sounding doubtful for Aaron Donald and Jack Lippert today. No surprise given what Paul Chryst said earlier in the week, and this is most likely precautionary to make sure both are ready when Pitt enters Big East play against Syrcause two weeks from today. Hubie Graham and Todd Thomas will both dress today, and it sounds like Thomas will try and get in at least a couple of snaps. Good for him to get back to speed after being out since early in training camp.

- The always excellent J. Brady McCollough went down to Boiling Springs, N.C., this week to write about what Gardner-Webb gets out of a game like this. Hint: Like Jessie J said, it's all about the money, money, money.

- Here's a link to my game preview, about how Pitt won't overlook another I-AA foe this weekend.

That's all for now. As always, I'll be Tweeting throughout the game. Enjoy the early games, and see you in a few hours. Anyone got a score prediction for this one?
