Those who cannot make it to the Field House will be able to stream the meet on ACC Network Extra or via the ESPN app.
Pitt has jumped out to a 6-3 (1-0 ACC) record so far this season, with two losses to highly-ranked Michigan and Ohio State, and a flawless conference start with a 25-10 win over Virginia on Jan. 21 to rise to No. 18 nationally.
With a 4-1 record at the Fitzgerald Field House, Pitt has been tough to knockoff at home, and a win over Virginia Tech would help solidify a strong resume.
With just four matches left this season, including two conference clashes against North Carolina and North Carolina State, Pitt is closing in on the ACC Championships in Charlottesville, Virginia on March 6.
Micky Phillippi and Nino Bonaccorsi have continued to excel for Pitt this season, holding 9-3 and 8-2 records, respectively, on the season. Jake Wentzel, Cole Matthews, Elijah Cleary and Gage Curry have all put together strong seasons for the Panthers too.
