Backyard Brawl Returns in 2017 (In Basketball)


Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

According to West Virginia University AD Shane Lyons, WVU and Pitt have agreed to a four-game series starting in 2017.

This will end a five year drought for one of the longest rivalries in college basketball as 2012 was the last time the rivalry was played. The series will consist of two home-and-homes as 2017 and 2019 will be played in the Petersen Event Center while 2018 and 2020 will be held in the WVU Coliseum.  As celebration, I give you Devin Ebanks.
