Inside the Oakland Zoo

On Saturday, Pitt beat Syracuse at home in basketball. Syracuse, which was ranked #6 at the time, is just the next team to fall victim to the Petersen Events Center’s home court advantage. Since its opening, Pitt is 12-1 against top 10 teams at home, and undefeated against those in the top 5.

The video is a first-hand account as to what it’s like to be inside the Oakland Zoo (Pitt’s students section) during the starting lineup announcements. Pretty cool.

Notre Dame vs. Pitt — 2012 edition

Being a lifelong Notre Dame fan and a Pittsburgh grad means that I get to enjoy watching my two favorite college football teams play each other once a year. And each time it seems, despite which team may be the better squad at that specific time, the game is always close. Seriously, look it up — some amazing games have taken place between these two rivals. Saturday was no different. Enjoy the highlights above.

Notre Dame 29, Pitt 26 (3 OTs).
