Saint Francis

NSN TV: Tremendous win for Saint Francis is also terrible loss for Pitt

There’s always two sides to every story. From the Saint Francis perspective, Wednesday’s victory over Pitt was historic and something many people never thought they would see. But from the Pitt perspective, it was embarrassing and alarming that the Panthers would lose to a Northeast Conference school not too far down the road in western PA, after going 29-0 all-time against Saint Francis.

Cory Giger has covered Saint Francis for 21 years. Jason Dambach is a lifelong Pitt fan and contributor to Nittany Sports Now. In this video, they give perspective on what the game means to both sides, with Giger also discussing Rob Krimmel’s incredible work at Saint Francis over the years.
