East Carolina (USA Today Sports)

I don’t think anyone would disagree with me if I said that North Carolina is a state known for basketball more so than football. North Carolina, Duke, and even North Carolina State all have history of success on the hardwood, so I guess that leaves East Carolina to be the self-proclaimed football school of the state.

ECU beat UNC 55-31 earlier this year and defeated NC State 42-28 Saturday, both on the road. Unfortunately the team won’t square off with Duke unless they are matched up in a bowl game, but that didn’t stop the 9-2 Pirates from boasting a bit on one of those digital billboards.

Well played.
