    Your facts are incorrect. The proper name for East Carolina is not Eastern Carolina. Furthermore, when the Pirates travel to Cincinnati this will not be their first trip. ECU has played Cincinnati numerous times while both were a member of Conference USA. And, the pirates beat the Bearcats over 90% of the time. Lesson to be learned: Don’t count your chickens too early as we get ready to resume the rivalry.
