PITTSBURGH (TNS) - Pitt and Virginia Tech players will wear face coverings both on the field and on the sidelines intoday's game at Heinz Field "in alignment with the recent guidance from state officials regarding the current health climate," Pitt announced Friday afternoon.

Face shields on helmets, which many players wear already, will not suffice. The Panthers and Hokies will be "appropriately outfitted" with either masks or neck gaiters to be worn whether they're on the field playing or not.
