Dan Marino to serve as honorary captain against Notre Dame

  Former Pittsburgh great Dan Marino will be in attendance for his alma mater's clash against ND.

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.
