No. 18 Pittsburgh (9-3) has begun preparing in earnest for its matchup with No. 24 Oregon State (8-4) in the 75th annual Sun Bowl Wednesday at 2 p.m. in El Paso, Texas. The game will be broadcast nationally by CBS-TV.
After morning meetings, the coaches and players visited El Paso's Thomason Hospital to spend time with the children and their families there. The Panthers went through a two-hour practice in the afternoon before returning to the team hotel for dinner. The evening ended with a trip to Adventure Zone, an activities park that had go-carts, miniature golf, batting cages and video games.
The meetings and workouts continue today. For photo coverage of Pitt's time in El Paso, check out the following links thanks to the Pitt Media Relations Department and the El Paso Times:
