The Irish will be having to adjust to a pro field Saturday night

PITTSBURGH, Penn. --- Saturday night's Notre Dame-Pitt game is happening at Heinz Field. The stadium sits right along the Ohio River and is home not only to the Pitt Panthers, but also the Pittsburgh Steelers.


Notre Dame fans who are in Pittsburgh Saturday have something they aren't used to at home.


A giant 26 by 96 foot scoreboard and TV to catch all of the action.


The pro field could pose some challenges for the Irish special teams.


"The concerns for me sometimes is the wind there. They've got some conditions that are tricky for our kicking game. So we've had to spend a lot of time with our kickers," Head Coach Brian Kelly said.


Right now it's breezy in Pittsburgh with wind gusts up to 25 miles per hour.
