Greenville, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - The 18th-ranked East Carolina Pirates will try to continue their reign atop the American Athletic Conference standings on Thursday night, as they take on the Connecticut Huskies at Dowdy- Ficklen Stadium. UConn's season has been a disappointment from the start, as its only win in six tries came against an FCS opponent on Sept. 6 in a 19-16 home triumph versus Stony Brook. ECU has enjoyed the opposite fate, going 5-1 overall, while placing tied atop the league standings with UCF at 2-0. The Pirates have ripped off four straight victories, including a 28-17 road win at USF on Oct. 11. This marks the first-ever meeting between the newly formed conference rivals.  Full Story
