Could a neutral site help ‘rivalry’ game continue?
It’s rivalry week at Penn State! Or is isn’t it?
While the Pitt and Penn State football programs continue to go back and forth over whether the series between two of Pennsylvania’s most storied football programs should be considered a rivalry ahead of the two teams’ 100th meeting, hosts Jon Sauber and Josh Moyer also take up the topic on this week’s episode of “Airing it Out.”
The age difference becomes evident this week as Moyer details the historical significance of the series and shares stories about what it means to former players, while Sauber can’t even remember the last time Pitt and Penn State played prior to this most recent series.
“For Penn State, ‘rivalry’ is like a four-letter word,” Moyer says. “This is a rivalry. It may not be a very good one in your opinion, but it used to be great — and it has the potential to be great again.”
