The Backyard Brawl
Backyard Brawl
is an American college football rivalry between the University of Pittsburgh
University of Pittsburgh
Panthers and West Virginia University Mountaineers. The term "Backyard Brawl" has also been used to refer to college basketball games played annually or semi-annually and may also be used to refer to other athletic competitions between the two schools. It is a registered trademark for both universities,[1] and refers to the close proximity of the two universities, separated by 75 miles (105 km) along Interstate 79. The football rivalry is the 14th oldest in the United States and is typically shown on national television. In the past, the Backyard Brawl has been seen on ABC, CBS, ESPN, and ESPN2. Through the 104 games played between these two schools, Pitt leads the series 61–40–3. On Saturday, December 1, 2007 the 100th edition of the Backyard Brawl
Backyard Brawl
took place at Mountaineer Field
Mountaineer Field
in Morgantown, West Virginia. The 4–7 Panthers upset the 2nd–ranked Mountaineers 13–9, knocking West Virginia out of the BCS National Championship Game. The game was one of the most important Backyard Brawls, one of the biggest upsets for the Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
Panthers, one of the biggest upsets of the season, and was voted as the "Game of the Year" by ESPNU.[2] The Mountaineers got revenge when the series returned to Morgantown in 2009, upsetting the No. 8 Panthers 19–16 on a game-ending field goal. The 2009 Backyard Brawl

was the most watched game in the history of ESPN2.

The football series was first played in 1895, and the game has historically been one of the more intense rivalries in the eastern United States. The rivalry between the two schools is due mainly to proximity. WVU's campus in Morgantown, West Virginia
Morgantown, West Virginia
is only about 70 miles south of Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
(via Interstate 79), and the two schools often compete for the same recruits. The 1921 edition of the Backyard Brawl
Backyard Brawl
was the first college football game broadcast on the radio when Harold W. Arlin announced the 21–13 Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
victory on KDKA.[3] From 1962–2011, the series alternated between Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
and Morgantown on a yearly basis. Before that, the games were held in Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
on an almost regular basis, with Morgantown occasionally hosting the game. At one point, Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
hosted the game 11 years in a row (1919–29) and also hosted eight straight contests between 1938–48. (There were no matchups from 1940–42.) In contrast, the most consecutive games West Virginia has hosted were four in a row from 1895–1901, with one of those games held in Fairmont, West Virginia, now the home to Fairmont State University, and one in Wheeling, West Virginia. The most consecutive games played in Morgantown, three, were held from 1932–34. West Virginia started out the series leading, 5–1. Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
won four games in a row from 1904–08 (there was no game played in 1905) to tie the series at 5–5. In 1909, the teams played to a 0–0 tie, making the series 5–5–1. The following year, Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
won 38–0, taking a 6–5–1 lead in the series, and has led ever since. Since the series began interchanging annually between Morgantown and Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
in 1963, the Mountaineers have held a 25–22–2 advantage over the Panthers. On November 25, 2004, the Backyard Brawl
Backyard Brawl
series saw its 97th game, surpassing the 96–game Penn State–Pittsburgh football rivalry
Penn State–Pittsburgh football rivalry
as Pittsburgh's most–played rivalry game. Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
celebrated the event with a 16–13 win at Heinz Field. On December 1, 2007, the 100th Backyard Brawl
Backyard Brawl
took place. Pittsburgh upset WVU by a score of 13–9. Coming into the game, WVU was ranked first in the Coaches' Poll and second in both the BCS and AP Poll. With the loss, WVU's BCS National Championship Game

chances were lowered. The Mountaineers and the Panthers wore Nike Pro Combat System of Dress, uniforms designed to pay respect to Pittsburgh's steel industry and West Virginia's coal mining industry, for the 2010 Backyard Brawl. According to the Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
Tribune Review, West Virginia wore a shade of white "that looks as if it has a fine layer of dust on the jersey" and has accents in university gold that "references the canaries used long ago to test toxicity in mines." The helmet has a thin yellow line, designed to look like "the beam of light emitted by a miner's headlamp." Meanwhile, Pitt wore smoky college navy and black jerseys and pants with metallic team gold numerals "to represent the brilliant glow of a blast furnace," according to a Nike website, and matching helmets with a gold stripe and logo "evocative of steel I-beams" and resembling a hard hat.[4] West Virginia won the game in Pittsburgh 35–10. In September 2015, both universities agreed to a four-game series running from 2022–25.[5][6] Location[edit]

The location of the Backyard Brawl
Backyard Brawl
has varied much throughout its history. The very first football game took place in Wheeling, West Virginia in 1895. The next meeting, in 1898, was held in Fairmont, a short distance south of Morgantown. The third and fourth contests were held in Morgantown. The year 1902 marked the first time the game was held in Pittsburgh, at Exposition Park, the North Shore home of the Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
Pirates. 1910 was the first time the Backyard Brawl
Backyard Brawl
was held on the Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
campus, at brand-new Forbes Field. The series was held here for eight of the next nine years, until the opening of Pitt Stadium
Pitt Stadium
in 1925 on the opposite end of the University of Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
campus. Pitt Stadium
Pitt Stadium
hosted 5 straight games, until in 1930, the Backyard Brawl
Backyard Brawl
found itself at yet another new location, Mountaineer Field, which had opened in 1924 on the campus of West Virginia University. Another change in location occurred in 1981, when the game was played at a new Mountaineer Field
Mountaineer Field
in Morgantown. In 1998 and 2000, the game was played at Three Rivers Stadium. The most recent change took place in 2002, when the Backyard Brawl

was played for the first time at Heinz Field, the new, full-time home of the Panthers, a year after it was opened. Football game results[edit]

Basketball[edit] The basketball rivalry between the two schools began on February 17, 1905. The teams began competing annually since 1918, and have played each other at least once every season since then.[8] Pitt began playing basketball in the Big East Conference in 1982–83, with the Mountaineers joining in 1995–96. The basketball rivalry has heated up over the last several years as each team has been among the best in the country and the games have taken on added significance. On February 9, 2006, for the first time in the history of the series, in the 169th edition, Pitt and WVU were both nationally ranked as they squared off in Pitt's Petersen Events Center. Pitt won, but a few weeks later, the two ranked teams played at WVU Coliseum
WVU Coliseum
with the Mountaineers winning. In the 2008–09 season, the Panthers swept both games during the regular season and came into the tournament ranked No. 2, but were upset by the Mountaineers in the quarterfinals of the Big East Tournament. During a February 2010 game when Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
visited West Virginia, several times during the course of the game, West Virginia fans threw objects at the Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
team. A Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
assistant coach was injured when an object was thrown at him. The actions received widespread attention. During the second half of the game, coach Bob Huggins used a microphone to address the fans. West Virginia University President Jim Clements issued an apology to the University of Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh
community. Additionally, West Virginia vowed to address security, as the incident closing followed similar occurrences in games against Syracuse and Ohio State.[9][10][11] This game was followed with a rematch nine days later in Pittsburgh, and while there were no off-court incidents,[12] the game proved to be one of the most memorable in the history of the series as the 25th ranked Panthers upset the fourth ranked Mountaineers 98–95 in the first triple overtime basketball game to be played between the two schools.[13][14] The 2011–12 season marked the end of the Brawl within Big East conference play. Pitt and WVU traded road wins, with Pitt winning in Morgantown 72–66, and WVU winning at the Petersen Events Center
Petersen Events Center
for only the second time ever 66–48. The future of the rivalry is in question as WVU began playing in the Big 12 in 2012, while Pitt moved to the ACC in 2013. In women's basketball, West Virginia leads the modern series, begun in 1975, 25–18.
