PITTSBURGH (AP) - Utah and Pittsburgh will play in the regular season for the first time when the schools meet in a home-and-home football series beginning next year.

Pitt will play at Utah on Sept. 11, 2010, with Utah traveling to Heinz Field on Oct. 15, 2011.

The schools have met only once, Utah's 35-7 victory in the Fiesta Bowl during the 2004 season. Utah finished 12-0 that season and went 13-0 last season, finishing no. 2 in the final Associated Press poll after beating Alabama 31-17 in the Sugar Bowl.

"Pitt-Utah is one of those rarely played intersectional games that should be very appealing for our fans and national television," Pitt Athletic Director Steve Pederson said in a statement. "Utah has been one of college football's biggest winners over the past several years, giving us a challenging and compelling opponent."
