East Carolina and UConn are two teams that will most likely not get the attention of a casual football watcher this weekend. However, this matchup is one that could be a great game with a ton of storylines to follow.
East Carolina has dropped to 3-7 on the year and has struggled for the most part. The Pirates have been able to play teams extremely close in the past couple of weeks and competed with some big-time names in the top 25 polls. The Pirates seem to be much better than their record shows and we could see a route if they play well.
UConn has gone through much of the same struggles as the Pirates. Dropping eight of the last nine games, the Huskies are playing for pride as they go into the last few games of their season.
East Carolina Pirates
East Carolina has dropped its last five games and has only been able to win on the road once this year. The daunting schedule of Cincinnati, SMU, USF, and UCF was a tough one to get through, but we saw the Pirates fight hard in each of those games and almost upset some good top 25 teams.
On Saturday we should see a much lesser opponent that East Carolina has to go face on the road. The Huskies have only been able to score 18 points a game and have trouble finding the endzone. Much to the liking of the Pirates defense who has given up nearly 33 points a game.
With Holton Ahlers still heading the charge for East Carolina, there is much to like about this Pirates team that they should easily win this game.
UConn has had a tough 2019 season after bouncing around with their quarterback rotation for much of the year. The Huskies have only won two of their last ten games and come into this AAC matchup winless in the conference.
The Huskies have home-field advantage on Saturday which could not mean much in the grand scheme with their fanbase checked out already. Jack Zergiotis will get the start for the Huskies as they try to salvage at least one game in the conference.
The defense will have to play much better than their average of 40 points a game given up. It will be cold and wet around kickoff which could play into the hands of the Huskies.

Free Week 13 NCAA Football Pick
I have been impressed with the East Carolina football team over the past couple of weeks. They have been able to cover the spread against two ranked teams even on the road and have played very well. They should be able to play at that same level against UConn and past the test to win this game easily.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: East Carolina -14.
East Carolina has been able to put up a ton of points, they just haven’t been able to stop anyone on defense. That could all change Saturday as the Huskies have an offense that has much to be desired upfront. Watch for the Pirates to be in the backfield all game long and take this one away.
You might be wondering if the home field advantage means anything here, don’t bank on it and take the Pirates to cover.
