Stakes have changed for ECU-UNC series

Thursday, September 20, 2012

When East Carolina competed as an independent in football from 1977 through 1996, there wasn't a bigger game than a road trip to play an in-state, Atlantic Coast Conference opponent. While Saturday's trip to Chapel Hill has significant implications for the Pirates, it is no longer a season-defining matchup. ECU coach Ruffin McNeill has played and coached against North Carolina.
