Watch Pitt-Penn State on the big screen in Oakland

With Pitt and Penn State meeting on the gridiron for the 100th and possibly last time, a big screen is being set up outdoors in Oakland to watch the game.

The big screen will be located at Forbes Digital Plaza at the corner of Forbes Avenue and South Bouquet Street for the noon kickoff Saturday.

The showing is free and open to the public. Lawn furniture will be provided by UPMC, or you can bring your own chair.

Fans can also bring food and beverages, but alcohol is not permitted.

Watching on the big screen in Oakland is not only a great way to avoid the 100,000 hostile Penn State fans in Happy Valley, but traffic as well.

PennDOT is warning of potential delays drivers could encounter as they travel to the game in Centre County throughout the day Friday and again on Saturday morning. The problem is compounded by a single-lane restriction for eastbound traffic on U.S. 22 in the Monroeville area. Restriction hours are from 8 p.m. Friday through 6 a.m. Monday.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
