SMU to face Pitt in BBVA Compass Bowl
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Pittsburgh will face SMU in its second straight trip to the BBVA Compass Bowl.
Bowl officials announced the matchup Sunday for the Jan. 7 game at Legion Field.
Pittsburgh beat Kentucky 27-10 last season in the first game after coach Dave Wannstedt was forced to resign. Now, his replacement, Todd Graham, must replace three assistants who have left the program to pursue other jobs, including co-offensive coordinator Calvin Magee.
Pittsburgh is making its fourth straight postseason appearance out of the Big East while coach June Jones has led SMU to three bowls in a row.
The two teams have split their first five meetings, 2-2-1. SMU, out of Conference USA, won their only other postseason matchup 7-3 in the 1983 Cotton Bowl.
