Pitt loses, Headed to Bowl to face S.Carolina?

With a lost today to the Cincy Bearcats by the score of 45-44 and the West Virginia football team taking a bowl invite by the Gator Bowl, it seems the Pitt Panthers are heading to Birmingham.

This would make for a intersting match-up for South Carolina (7-5) in the Bowl versus a 9 win Pitt team on Jan. 2 game.

Pitt had their game today in their hands until Tony Pike led Cincinnati on a one-minute, 61-yard strike to tie the game, and Jake Rogers' PAT won it.  Basically, a heart breaker for Pitt nation and the result could mean it gets the Big East #4 bowl tie-in and that road leads to Alabama.

I guess we will learn if this match-up get solidified on Sunday so stay tuned...So we got Spurrier v Dave Wannstedt ? Should be a very interesting game if it holds true...
PS -USC Coaching staff please go ahead and begin this weekend on creating ways to slow Pitt RB Dion Lewis as he had 3 TDs and nearly 200yds rushing vs a good Cincy D.  The Pitt Offense flows through him.
