ECU Expects No. 22 Va Tech's Best Shot

GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Skip Holtz and East Carolina are expecting No. 22 Virginia Tech's best shot.

For several reasons, the Pirates figure to have the Hokies' full attention when they play Thursday night.

Virginia Tech (5-3) is clinging to a national ranking after two straight losses, is trying to avoid its first three-game losing streak since 2003 and certainly remembers how East Carolina knocked off the Hokies in the opener last year.

Holtz expects the Hokies to bounce back, but is hoping that doesn't happen for another week. He's looking to give his team another program-validating victory.

The Pirates (5-3) are hosting a ranked team for the first time since they knocked off then-No. 8 West Virginia last year.

    I didn't spell anything wrong. That just goes to show where an ECU degree will take you.

    Hey "R-Truth" maybe you need to go to a good school like ECU to learn how to spell....What a shame...AARRRGGHHHHHHH!!!

    I think this person means PITIFUL not "pitful"...maybe I'm wrong. They like to make up things at VA Tech. Their fans are narcissistic as well, so they might "say" they meant to use that word...but that doesn't make any sense. So it is concluded that if you are a Virginia Tech fan you...can't spell.

    VA Tech's worst shot is plenty to beat the pitful Pirates.
