ECU Beats Tulane

Patrick Pinkney threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Jamar Bryant with 1:41 left to play, and No. 14 East Carolina rallied for a 28-24 victory against Tulane on Saturday.

Pinkney completed 22-of-32 passes for 260 yards and two touchdowns, and the Pirates improved to 3-0 for the first time since 1999. ECU secured the victory when Pierre Bell intercepted
Kevin Moore's pass at the Green Wave 45 with 28 seconds left.
