Pitt’s coming

And the Panthers will do so with an 8-0 record after beating Duquense last night.
Pitt and UW will play Saturday at noon in a game that already looms critical to Washington’s post-season hopes.
Despite having played three big-name teams, the Huskies rank 175 in the RPI this week in large part due to having lost all three of those games.
Pitt beat writer Ray Fittipaldo says this could be a tough game for the Panthers to win, however, due in part to the long trip. Pitt is making the trip West today and will practice at UW tomorrow.
Here’s another take on last night’s game and one thing to remember is that this is an inter-city rivalry, the two schools are about two miles apart, so emotions tend to run high.
— By the way, Ken Pomeroy doesn’t see much good ahead for UW, with his formula now predicting the Huskies to finish 10-21 overall and 3-15 in Pac-10 play. If you recall, Pomeroy’s math was pretty right on concering UW a year ago as he called for the Huskies to be right in the 7-8-9-win stage in the conference early on so this may not be the best omen.
