The University of Pittsburgh's Pitt Panthers, also call this home.

Here are some specifics: Heinz Field sits on the riverfront with a scenic view of downtown Pittsburgh. It has 2.2 acres of natural bluegrass. The ground is maintained at a temperature of 62 degrees by an underground heating system. The stadium, completed in 2001, seats 65,000 and has 127 luxury suites and 6,600 club seats.
