Wisconsin, Pitt announce home-and-home series for 2026, 2027

A familiar ACC program with ties to the current coaching staff.

On Thursday morning, Wisconsin and Pitt announced a home-and-home series against each other for the 2026 and 2027 seasons.

Wisconsin will host the first match-up on Sept. 19, 2026, at Camp Randall Stadium, while Heinz Field will be the location of the second game in Pittsburgh on Sept. 11, 2027.

Of course, there are connections between both programs. Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst led Pitt from 2012–14, going 19–19 in those three seasons before he returned home to Madison to lead the Badgers.

Current Wisconsin assistants Joe Rudolph, Inoke Breckterfield, John Settle, Mickey Turner, and Joe Budmayr all were on Chryst’s staff or involved with the Pitt program in some capacity, as was current Badgers head strength and conditioning coach Ross Kolodziej and director of football operations T.J. Ingels.

Pitt leads the all-time series 3–0 over Wisconsin, with the last match-up between the two schools coming in 1967—a 13–11 UW home loss.
