Pitt coach Paul Chryst is rewarding his players for their selfless attitude by allowing the names to return to the back of their jerseys before next weekend's visit to fourth-ranked Notre Dame.

Chryst removed the names when he arrived on campus in January, saying he wanted his players to understand the team - and not individual attention - is what's most important.

Pitt drummed Temple 47-17 on Saturday to move to 4-4 on the season. Chryst stressed putting the nameplates back wasn't simply because the Panthers beat the Owls. He said it's a tribute to the team's attitude makeover.

The Panthers are looking for their first victory over a Top 5 opponent since knocking off rival West Virginia in 2007.
