Pitt-South Florida pregame ponderables


Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett

PITTSBURGH -- Greetings from Heinz Field, where it's homecoming for No. 20 Pitt against South Florida today.

It rained nearly all day Friday, but the skies are clear this afternoon and the temperature should be about 60 degrees by kickoff.

One bit of pregame news for South Florida: Running back Jamar Taylor, who's missed the entire season with a knee injury, will dress and is expected to play. How much of a role he will have is questionable.

What I like about this game is that, using strictly the eyeball test, these two teams might have the most impressive overall rosters in the Big East. I'm not saying they're the best or even the most talented teams. But they both have athletes who look imposing coming off the bus.

And the high level of skill players on both sides makes for some enticing matchups. A few I'm most interested in today are:
I'll have much more to come throughout the day from the Steel City.
