The East Carolina football team opened conference USA play Saturday night against UAB down in Birmingham, Alabama.
You could have watched the game on WITN, but what a heart breaker it was. The Blazers looking like they would roll all over the Pirates early on, but like the Pirates they always fought back. Down 17 to 6, the Pirates would battle back and actually almost won the game with less than 1:30 left, but again, the dice just wouldn't fall for the purple and gold. They lose in Alabama 17-12.
