Neither Syracuse nor Pittsburgh know if they’re truly rivals

Since the Syracuse Orange left the Big East, the quest for a true “rival” in the ACC hasn’t led to a definitive answer.

We created a trophy for the Boston College series across all sports, but that sort of fell off once BC decided to take a break from revenue sports and Sean continues to hold the bird hostage in Chicago. Clemson’s a fun online “rivalry.” We don’t get along with NC State fans for one reason or another. And then there’s the Pittsburgh Panthers, who the ACC’s thrown at us as a RIVAL, yet we’re not even sure if they’re a (small-r) rival.
