A pair of 3-2 teams get set for a crucial contest that could boost both team’s resumes when the Pirates and Cougars meet up.
ECU tries for their third straight win as they’ve knocked off Virginia Tech and SMU in consecutive weeks.
BYU on the other hand, put the brakes on their 2 game losing streak with a win over Uconn last week.
Kick off is set for 7:30 PM EST.
The Pirates’ stock is on the rise as they’ve rattled off 2 straight wins and will look for number 3 here on Saturday.
ECU fell to Navy and Florida earlier in the season, but have since rebounded with an upset win over Virginia Tech, 35-28, and then a beat down of SMU as they scored 49 points in the win.
The Pirates have a unique 2 QB system, that they’ve found a way to make work. QBs Blake Kemp and James Summers gave the Pirates 333 yards of total offense last week.
RB Chris Hairston found his first productive game as he finished with 91 yards on the ground last week. As a team, the Pirates rushed for 306 yards overall.
The Cougars know exactly how the Pirates feel offensively right now. BYU racked up 539 yards of total offense last week in their 30-13 win over Connecticut.
The Cougars are led by Freshman QB Tanner Mangum, who has thrown for 1084 yards and is coming off a 365 yard performance last week.
As far as the running game is concerned, the Cougars will still be without starting RB Adam Hine, who is sidelined with an ankle injury. With Hine out, that means the duties go to Algernon Brown.
Brown rushed for 95 yards on 18 carries last week.
Defensively, the Cougars continue to get big plays as they’ve forced 9 interceptions against the opposition this season.
