The ECU Pirates will play before a national television audience Saturday as they vie for the Conference USA Championship.
The game against Houston will be on ESPN2, with a 12 noon kickoff at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
It will be the fifth time this season that East Carolina has played in front of a nationwide audience.
WITN-TV will broadcast a pre-game special on the Pirates' championship quest on Friday at 7:30 p.m.
The Pirates say tickets for the game, at $40 each, can be purchased online by clicking this link. The university says there will be no refunds or exchanges on any championship tickets, and tickets will not be replaced if lost or stolen.
Active Pirate Club members will have the first opportunity to purchase C-USA Championship Game tickets. The university says members who purchased 2009 football season tickets, and are reserved parking permit holders, are guaranteed to receive their same seat and parking locations if their orders are received by 5:00 p.m. Tuesday.
Season ticket holders also have until 5:00 p.m. Tuesday to keep their same regular season seating location.
All non-Pirate club ticket orders will be filled on a first-ordered, first-served basis after the Pirate Club deadline. General public orders are being accepted now, but credit cards will only be charged once an order is filled.
