Pat Narduzzi rants about being home underdog to Tennessee: 'We're in the pee-wee league'
Pat Narduzzi is going to play “disrespect” card this week as the Pitt Panthers prepare for a visit from Tennessee.
The way the Panthers coach sees it, there’s no way his piddling ACC squad can line up against a program from the mighty SEC.
Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi on being a home underdog after winning at Tennessee and winning the ACC last year: "There's only really two Power Five conferences in the country, the SEC and the Big Ten, so we're in the pee-wee league, and we're going to line up and see if we can play."

The Volunteers are a 5.5-point road favorite going into this Saturday’s game at Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh. Both teams won their Week 1 openers. Pittsburgh outlasted West Virginia, 38-31, in the return of the Backyard Brawl and Tennessee easily dispatched of Ball State, 59-10.
This is the second-half of a home-and-home series between the two programs. Last year it was Kenny Pickett leading pee wee Pitt to a 41-34 win at Neyland Stadium.
