PART 1, 2007 BACKYARD BRAWL: “13-9. HOW DID WE GET HERE?”
which was a shortage of a certain essential paper product here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. This specific inconvenience during the crisis, brought to my mind a different kind of butt wiping: the one that occurred in Morgantown, West Virginia on December 1, 2007. To Pitt fans, the game is simply remembered as “13-9”.
the past several weeks, I’ve watched full replays of Pitt-WVU 2007, Pitt-PSU 1976,
and Pitt-Clemson 2017. While they are all great, I hold the 2007 WVU game in
slightly higher regard than the others.
In this two part article, I first review the 4-7 season which provided the Panthers the
opportunity for us to even speak the words, “13-9”. Part two will recap the game
itself, with some insight from some of the key participants in the game.
I would ask that my POV brethren share in the comments, your own thoughts and
remembrances from what I believe is the best Pitt football victory in the past 35
