A cold, rainy Saturday morning in Greenville, North Carolina was made no better by the East Carolina University (4-9, 1-7 AAC) football team inside Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. Despite a slow start to the afternoon, the University of Tulsa Golden Hurricane (4-8, 2-6 AAC) racked up over 660 yards of total offense, including 338 on the ground in a 49-24 win over the Pirates.
“Disappointing end to this first season together,” Mike Houston said following the game. “It’s disappointing because we have higher expectations for our program than this and that is a positive. We expect to be able to go out and play games at a very, very high level and be able to win any given Saturday.
