MORGANTOWN, W.Va.-- The West Virginia Mountaineers will take on the Pitt Panthers in the 190th edition of the Backyard Brawl on Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Monongalia County Ballpark. West Virginia (35-23, 7-12 Big 12) is coming off a 5-4 win against No.11 Oklahoma State on Saturday in resumption of Friday’s game.
