**When is a picture worth 1,000 words? When Pitt’s coach suggests that Penn State visit Pittsburgh in 2025 and a fan notices something funny (see tweet below).
In all reality, there’s NO chance PSU would trade a home game against Virginia Tech that was canceled for a road trip to Pitt — or anywhere else, for that matter. But especially to Pitt.
This is the Lions’ schedule for 2025, and as you can see, they already have five road games scheduled. The school cannot and will not schedule another road game to replace the home game against the Hokies. Home games are simply worth way, way too much money.
Now, if Pitt wants to come to Beaver Stadium …
Anyway, here’s a fantastic comment a fan made on Twitter.
I bet he does and that was picture caught Franklin's response when he suggested it.
