Q: What is the difference between The television commercials pit Coke head-to-head with Pepsi in what they called the Pepsi Challenge. and The television commercials pit Coke head-to-head against Pepsi in what they called the Pepsi Challenge. ?
A: @H-oon
The only differences in the sentence that I can see are the words with and against.
To pit is to compete or challenge. In some sense both words make sense. You can be in a competition with someone as in you are both included in the competition. Also they are your challengers so they are against you in the competition. So bottom line, both make sense but my ears prefer against. I think against matches the sense of aggression and competition in the sentence. Hope this helps.
