GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Case Keenum threw for 399 yards and
three touchdowns, and Houston earned its first win against a ranked
opponent in a dozen years by beating No. 23 East Carolina 41-24 on
Saturday.
Patrick Edwards had 11 catches for 146 yards and a touchdown for
the Cougars (2-3, 1-0 Conference USA), who had no trouble moving
the ball and finished with 621 total yards. Bryce Beall ran for 132
yards and two scores, while Houston's defense didn't allow the
Pirates to score an offensive touchdown until midway through the
third quarter.
Houston had lost 18 straight games against ranked opponents
since a 56-49 overtime win against then-No. 20 Southern Mississippi
in November 1996.

    Frame it you got one on me. I wonder what the NCAA thinks about him making money doing a commercial wearing an ECU jersey. It looks unethical to me. You don't see USC coach Pete Carroll doing a commercial while wearing an USC jersey. Thank you

    dave honestly giving one or two comments ok, give more than three that is crazy! Instead of making it your life's mission to hate ECU how about getting a job or at least doing your job instead of writting trash about ECU. GO PIRATES!!!!

    Dave: If all you can do is ridicule the South and even go as far as picking on a kid's accent, then why ARE you down here?

    deadfish when I see that mattress commercial I get a good laugh when that one kids calls Greenville Greenvolle and when Skip is pointing to the Kids sign at the end.

    deadfish: you are mistaken. Yes, Coach Holtz has done a commercial for the mattress store, but the boys aren't his sons. If you listen closely at the beginning of the ad you will hear Holtz say that he is there with the Hill boys; as in David Hill - the gentleman who owns the mattress store along with the entire strip shopping center that his store is located in. I'm a former ECU student, but at least I know how to listen. Not bad for a 206 ranking, huh?

    Keith: Please read my Sep 28(04:14 PM) post down below the link that tells you that ECU is rated #206 academically in the nation. BTW what do you Pirate fans think of the mattress commercial done by Mr. Skip Holtz and his sons? Thank you

    Dave: Where are you from? If from Pa., where? Anyone that has ever spent time in Pa. knows full well that the vast expanse of land between Philly and Pitts. is about the redneckiest (if I may) place in all of America. Ever drive route 15? Heehaw! Now, I have nothing against rural areas, or rednecks. I know many, call many friends, and have some redneckedness myself. Here is the difference: folks around here know the rural traditions and embrace it as part of their heritage. The Pa 'necks do not have a clue that they are HUGE 'necks and lambast others for being so. They have no self insight whatsoever, then move south as the rust belt crumbles, and through ignorance and poor self esteem, claim superiority. The irony is all too rich as they pursue education and money in an area they claim is inferior. The cities in Pa.= (I am stooping to stereotypes here like Dave) = filled with blue collar, undereducated, racist ethnics. You ain't seen segregation till you've seen Pa. Look in mirror Dave

    NO I don't like grits, country music, barbecue, or any other "Southern" tradition. The word Yankee is a compliment to me! It's better than being a Southern hill billy redneck!
