Pitt AD hopeful series with PSU can resume

By ESPN.com staff

AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. -- Pittsburgh's annual rivalry with Penn State ended in 2000, but on Tuesday at the ACC meetings, Pitt athletic director Steve Pederson told ESPN that he is "very optimistic" the series will be renewed.

Pitt and Penn State have played 96 times since 1893, including annually from 1900-31, 1935-92 and 1997-2000. They will play four times between 2016-19, but after discussions with Penn State athletic director Dave Joyner, Pederson believes the schools will schedule more games in the future.
