Rivalries

Pitt traditionally has had a rivalry with Penn State University. Formerly independent powers of college football in the East, Pitt and Penn State played each other on an annual basis for state bragging rights as well as recruiting advantage. Penn State leads the series 50-42-4. The rivalry started in 1905 and continued even when Pitt joined the Big East Conference in 1982. However, Penn State joining the Big Ten Conference in 1992, as well as disagreements between the two schools, caused the rivalry to end in 2000.

The Pitt/Penn State rivalry still exists in other sports as well as between the schools in general. It is a somewhat tense rivalry. "Penn State Sucks" is an unofficial lyric to the Pitt fight song, which is sung by students regardless of which school Pitt is playing. However, the Pitt administration recently eliminated the lull in the fight song where these words are sung. Since the end of the football Pitt/PSU series, the rivalry has significantly lessened in intensity, thereby allowing other rivalries to develop.


Pitt also has a large football rivalry with West Virginia University that dates back to 1895. The annual contest is called the Backyard Brawl, due to the proximity of the two schools' main campuses (they are 80 miles apart and both along the Monongahela River) and the shared boundary between western Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The game is traditionally played on the Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving during what many sportscasters call Rivalry Week, due to the large number of games between college rivals.

History of the University

Originally founded by Hugh Henry Brackenridge as Pittsburgh Academy in 1787, the University of Pittsburgh is among a select group of universities and colleges founded in the 18th Century in the United States. It was renamed The Western University of Pennsylvania in 1819 and took its current name in 1908. In 1966 it was designated by Pennsylvania as a "state-related" university. As such, Pitt receives public funds (currently more than $200 million per annum) and offers reduced tuition to Pennsylvania residents, but is under independent control. It is generally considered a public university.¹ Pitt's endowment is $1.53 billion (2005).

In 1991, the faculty gave a vote of no confidence to long time chancellor Wesley Posvar due to a perceived lack of transparency in his management style. The university was faced with a financial crisis, and a lucrative retirement package was approved for Posvar by his board in the midst of the financial crisis. Posvar countered that the money was largely his savings, accepted a decrease to his salary-for-life, and donated his university-funded life insurance proceeds back to the university. Despite the controversy in his last year in office, Posvar's legacy was widely regarded to be very positive for the University. See Wesley Posvar. Wesley Wentz Posvar (1925–2001) was the fifteenth Chancellor (1967-1991) of the University of Pittsburgh. ...
