East Carolina has had a rough season so far this year, but Saturday's performance by quarterback Dominique Davis is something of which the Pirates can be proud.
Davis set two NCAA records against Navy and more important, earned his team a 38-35 win.
Davis completed his first 26 passes to set an NCAA record that was previously shared by Tennessee's Tee Martin in 1998 and Cal's Aaron Rodgers in 2004. Both players completed 23 in a row.
Davis also came into the game having completed his final 10 passes against Memphis last week, and his 36 total completed passes in a row also broke Rodgers' mark of 26 consecutive passes spanning two games.

Overall, Davis completed 40-of-45 passes for 372 yards and two touchdowns. His 88.9 completion percentage is the second-highest completion percentage among passers with at least 40 completions.
While coaches and players will say it's not about the individual performances, this is certainly one that deserves recognition.
