Football

First played in 1895, 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 is only about 70 miles (112 km) south of Pittsburgh, and the two schools often compete for the same recruits. Of these recruits, 400 have become National Football League players, including 27 first round draft picks. There have also been 100 First-Team All Americans and 57 other All-Americans. On October 2, 1965, WVU defeated Pitt 63-48, with the 111 points being the highest point total in one game in the series.

Since 1962, the series has alternated between Pittsburgh and Morgantown on a yearly basis. Before that, the games were held in Pittsburgh on an almost regular basis, with Morgantown only occasionally hosting the game. At one point, Pittsburgh hosted the game 11 years in a row (1919-1929) and also hosted eight straight contests between 1938 and 1948. (There were no matchups in 1940-1942.) In contrast, the most consecutive games West Virginia hosted were three in a row from 1932-1934. The disproportion of home games before this time was largely the reason another Pitt rivalry, the Penn State-Pitt rivalry, ended abruptly in 2000. One game in 1898 was also held in Fairmont, West Virginia, now the home to Fairmont State University. The Penn State-Pitt rivalry is a currently-dormant football rivalry between two of the most storied college football programs in the Eastern United States: the Penn State Nittany Lions and Pitt Panthers. ...

During the existence of Three Rivers Stadium, the games held in Pittsburgh were played at that stadium as opposed to Pitt Stadium, likely due to the larger capicity at Three Rivers as opposed to Pitt Stadium. Three Rivers Stadium was a multi-purpose sports stadium and event facility located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania from 1970 through 2000. ... Pitt Stadium was a stadium that hosted football and track and field events starting in 1925. ...

The Backyard Brawl turns 100, and what a century it's been - USATODAY.com (1120 words)
To Rhoads, the Backyard Brawl is a perfect nickname for an always-physical, always-meaningful series that will be played for the 100th time Saturday night when Pitt tries to block No. 2 West Virginia's path to the national championship game.
The Brawl was decided one year by a walk-on kicker, the next by a Heisman Trophy winner - and, nearly 20 years later, by another walk-on from the same city as the earlier walk-on star.
Backyard Brawls have been staged in August, September, October and November, but this will be the first December meeting.
