Pirates Fall to Tulsa

East Carolina University

The East Carolina football team hoped to pick up their third win of the season Saturday afternoon at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium in Greenville.

The Pirates battled defending Conference USA champion Tulsa in front of a crowd of over 34,000. The Pirates said they had worked on the running game, and that would get them their first touchdown. But that TD came when James Pinkney kept it himself, which tied the game up at 7 at that point. Unfortunately, that was the only ECU touchdown. Tulsa won, 31-10.
