Yes, SU plays WVU. Pitt is going to the same bowl for the third year in a row.

The Pinstripe Bowl had the rights to the 4th place Big East team (or to pick 4th, anyway). There was talk that they might choose #5 Pitt to get a Backyard Brawl Bowl. There’s a storyline and you know the teams will be up for a contest. No need to manufacture hype.

But the bowl probably thought they’d sell more tickets to a NY team and wanted to stay in their pecking order.

I think it sucks, but it’s their choice.
