Mike’d Up: Backyard Brawl Excitement, West Virginia Basketball’s Losing Streak



Even though the rebirth of the Backyard Brawl is still months and months away, the news that it will kickoff the college football season on a Thursday night sparked some excitement already.

Mike Asti and Mike Vukovcan discuss what that game in a prime time spot means, what the early season schedules look like for Pitt and WVU. They also talk Pitt’s latest coaching hire.

Asti even touches on WVU basketball’s recent losing streak and if Bob Huggins can get things turned back around.
