The Tulane Green Waves will look to splash into North Carolina without a problem as they take on the East Carolina Pirates.
Both programs are in the midst of trying to recover from a horrible start to the season.
Tulane Green Waves
Although Tulane has been on the wrong side of their rivalry with East Carolina recently, they are coming into Saturday’s meeting as the better team. Not only will they be road favorites against the Pirates, but the line is nearly a touchdown in their favor (+5.5).
The fact they are favorites is more about the Pirates being bad than Tulane being good. Still, though, the Green Wave have had some nice moments this year and are almost always putting on respectable performances.
Just last week they lost a one-point heartbreaker to Cincinnati and two weeks before that the lost a close, six-point game to previously-ranked South Florida. Needless to say, the Green Wave may not be a bowl team, but they can knock off pretty much anyone in the American Athletic Conference.
It should be noted Tulane beat Tulsa, their division rival, by 34 (62-28) and also knocked off a bowl-bound Army team 21-17 in back-to-back weeks.
Tulane uses a rush-heavy attack on offense to keep their defense off the field and ware down opponents.
They rank fourth in the AAC in rushing yards, and because of clock control, their defense ranks No.6 out of 12 AAC teams in points allowed. Luckily, this week, the Wave has a clean bill of health and will be at full strength.
East Carolina Pirates
The East Carolina football program is in a very strange spot this year. For starters, they have only two wins, but those two wins have been against big-time programs who get solid recruits (BYU and UConn).
Then, on the flip side, they haven’t played a close game in any of their other seven contests. In fact, they’re getting trounced by 25-plus points regularly.
Luckily, they have a three-win program coming in this week with Tulane. Look for the Pirates to come out hungry at home, especially on defense.
After all, this is a unit that is dead-last in the AAC and wants to save face before the season ends. Overall, the defense is allowing an astronomical 565-yards per game and is the only AAC team to average more than 40 points against per game
Offensively, the Pirates are all-the-way healthy and will look to get their potent passing game going early Saturday night.
They currently rank fourth-best in the AAC in passing yards and can air it out with the best of them. Unfortunately, the team is averaging just 3.1 yards per rush which has held them back in a few ways schematically
