It's A Final: WVU 35, ECU 20

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Jarrett Brown threw a career-high four touchdown passes and West Virginia overcame special teams mistakes and 11 penalties to beat East Carolina 35-20 Saturday.

Brown completed nine straight passes at one point against a veteran defense and finished 24 of 31 for a career-high 334 yards.

West Virginia (2-0) sacked Patrick Pinkney four times and held East Carolina (1-1) scoreless in the second half. The Mountaineers used last year's 24-3 loss at East Carolina as motivation and improved to 13-0 at home against the Pirates.

East Carolina turned two West Virginia miscues on punts into scores, but Pinkney struggled against a defense that lost three starters to injury in the first half. Pinkney went 16 of 39 for 175 yards. East Carolina was limited to 237 yards of offense.
