ECU Rolls Over Rice, 49-13

GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Dwayne Harris returned a kickoff 92 yards for a touchdown and added two touchdown catches to help East Carolina beat winless Rice 49-13 on Saturday.

Harris matched his career-high with 128 yards receiving for the Pirates (4-3, 3-1 Conference USA), while Rob Kass -- a former starting quarterback who moved to tight end -- had his first career scoring catch to help East Carolina to a relatively stress-free win. The Pirates led 21-3 by midway through the second quarter and never let the Owls (0-7, 0-3) make it closer than a two-possession game before blowing it open late.

It was another big performance from Harris, a junior receiver who has become the Pirates' big-play threat. Last week, he had a 77-yard kickoff return for a score and a rushing touchdown in a loss at SMU, and has scored seven touchdowns in the past four games.
