East Carolina travels to UAB on Thursday night as the two-time defending Conference USA champion returns to league play after an ugly loss to Navy. The game airs at 8pm on CBS College Sports Network.
The Pirates (5-4, 4-1) watched the Midshipmen score 76 points last weekend in their final nonconference game, but East Carolina is still in contention for another East Division title and a berth in the league title game.
The Blazers (3-6, 2-3) have lost two of three overall, with their only win in that stretch being in overtime at Southern Miss two weeks ago. East Carolina has won three straight meetings, including last year's 37-21 win in Greenville.
