Pitt-Clemson preview: Everything you need to know before Sunday battle

PITTSBURGH — This article originally appeared on pittsburghsportsnow.com.

On Sunday afternoon, Pitt will host Clemson in its first ACC matchup of the season. Let’s dive into the preview.


The Panthers are now 5-2 after falling to Missouri on Tuesday. Pitt has had four days to focus on a new set of Tigers, this time coaches by Brad Brownell. The oddly-timed conference matchup will be a big one for Jeff Capel’s squad, as Clemson comes to town with a 6-0 record after taking down No. 23 Alabama last week in Tuscaloosa.


Clemson finished 23-11 last season, just barely missing the NCAA Tournament. The Tigers have missed the past two tournaments after making it in as a No. 7 seed in the 2020-21 season. This year, Brownell is looking to turn things back in the right direction, and has a veteran-led squad that can get you from all over the court.
