East Carolina Pirates
East Carolina lost three games to start the season before winning its first. Then it lost three more in a row before winning last week against BYU. The Pirates have four more games remaining if they want that pattern to continue for one more go-around. At least it would finish with an upset at Memphis in the season’s final week.
ECU has played a bit of a challenging schedule, though. The Pirates started with a bad loss, home to JMU. Then they went to West Virginia, played Virginia Tech at home and saw USF and UCF, both ranked teams, in two of the next four weeks after that. Neither of the wins, UConn or BYU, were particularly good though.
Two quarterbacks combined to rack up 300 yards passing on just 30 attempts in last week’s win, though. Most of those yards went to Davon Grayson, who caught 10 of the 20 completions for 164 yards receiving. That will just make him more of a target this week against Houston.
Houston rallied after its first loss overall on the season against Texas Tech to take its first two games in conference. Then the Cougars got hit in the mouth in Tulsa, Oklahoma and it took them two weeks to get back on their feet.
The blowout loss to the Golden Hurricane carried over into the next week against a quality Memphis team but one that Houston must believe it should beat. The Tigers put up 42 points in a good old Texas shootout. They still have a one-game lead over UH for first place in the American West.
There are two other teams there, either tied or ahead of Houston that it will have to deal with on its way back up to catch Memphis but the Coogs aren’t out of it. They just have to run the table.
That process got underway with a miracle win at South Florida last week. Houston was down to a 4th and 24 before converting and eventually scoring the go-ahead touchdown that proved to be the game-winner. That was the hard part. Now, Houston has two home games with a visit to a poor Tulane team in between. The Cougars will be ready this week.
