Perry will be among a big contingent of Brown football coaches and players who will get together to root for the Cardinals.
Apparently a few players are Pittsburgh natives and bleed black and gold.
"They've already been told they will have to find their own party," said Perry. "We're all Cardinals fans on Sunday. We're all Sean Morey fans on Sunday."

Morey remembers Perry as a tough guy
Can you tells us anything about James Perry? Any good stories?
Morey: "[He laughs] I have too many. I probably shouldn't even say."
Could you give us one good one?
Morey: "It was my senior year. I remember he had a torn PCL, LCL - everything you could do to your knee, he did it. And then he injured his left knee as well. So senior year, right before we're going out to play Yale, reporters came in to interview James and he was on crutches. He took the crutches and put them behind the door. He walked towards the reporters as if nothing was wrong ... Just a tough, tough guy. He played for his team, played hard all the time."
Q: How about one more?
Morey: "My senior year he would wake me up all the time, bang on my door every Sunday and drag me to church. He was just a man of conviction and just a great person and a great friend."
