GREENVILLE, N.C. - East Carolina will play in front of a school-record sixth sell-out when it hosts Southern Miss Saturday, thanks in part to a successful "Paint Black Friday Purple" ticket promotion which began Thursday and concluded Friday afternoon after all 700 remaining student upper deck tickets were purchased.
However, ECU students can still attend the game by picking up standing room only tickets with a valid One Card.
The athletics ticket office will remain open until 5 p.m. Friday and reopen at 10 a.m. Saturday.
The kickoff for the contest between the Pirates and Golden Eagles, which will decide the Conference USA East Division title, is scheduled for 1:30 p.m.
