Pittsburgh football: Dan Marino to serve as honorary captain vs. Notre Dame
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.
