It is a key game for the Pirates since they face Virginia Tech next week before going to Tulsa.

In the last college football betting meeting between the two teams it was East Carolina winning 30-10. The Pirates ran off 23 unanswered second-half points to get the win and the NCAA football betting cover at the sports book.
