With the ACC’s reveal of football schedules for 2015, one thing appears clear: The Pitt Panthers will have to get used to hotels and hostile crowds early on next season.

Five of the Panthers’ first seven games will be on the road, including a Sept. 19 game at the University of Iowa as the second part of a home-and-home series that the teams created.

As was known prior to the announcement, Pat Narduzzi’s first game as Pitt’s head coach will come on Sept. 5 at home against Youngstown State. The two teams also played in the season opener for both teams in 2012, which Youngstown State won 31-17.

“This has been a really energizing month at Pitt, and the announcement of our upcoming schedule is one more reason to be excited,” Narduzzi said in a release.

Pitt, which finished each of its last four seasons with a 6-6 record, also has a Thursday night game scheduled against North Carolina on Oct. 29.

For the third straight year — every year Pitt has played in the ACC — Pitt and Miami will play against each other in their final regular season games on Nov. 27.

After not playing last season for the first time since 2007, Pitt and Notre Dame will renew their series in 2015 when they meet in Pittsburgh on Nov. 7.
