The Pittsburgh-Notre Dame rivalry is one of the oldest in college football. The two schools first squared off in 1909, and the Irish lead the all-time series 47-21-1.

Dan Marino, who led the Panthers to three top-five finishes in a row between 1979-1981, will attend this Saturday’s game against Notre Dame and serve as Pitt’s honorary captain.

Plenty of Panther greats will be on hand to watch the Panthers clash with the Irish, including Tony Dorsett, Mike Ditka and several others.

Pittsburgh and Notre Dame will kick things off at Noon ET this Saturday.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
