Ben Roethlisberger, Mike Tomlin visited Pitt practice Thursday

The Pittsburgh Panthers were one of the better teams in the ACC last season as they contended for the division title for majority of the year. They are back hard at work for the 2016 season and they had a couple of special visitors on Thursday when Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger visited the team’s practice.

Many of the Panthers are likely Steelers fans, as they should be. The Steelers allow Pitt to use Heinz Field as a home stadium. The pair of Steelers were also joined by former Pitt coach Walt Harris.

If Roethlisberger and Tomlin gave Pitt some advice, fans could see the Panthers make a run at the ACC championship this year. If they get running back James Conner recovered from his bout with Leukemia, that certainly seems like a possibility.
