It is a sad day for Pitt football. BBVA Compass has decided to stop sponsoring a bowl game in Birmingham Alabama. You may remember the Compass Bowl for its accurate slogan: “Southern Hospitality, Serious Football”, or because it was one of those crappy bowl games that took place between the BCS games and the National Championship.
However, the Compass Bowl will forever be known as the bowl game Pitt played in every year. The Panthers played in all three Compass Bowls – finishing with a 1-2 record.
