What’s Going To Happen
East Carolina has had two weeks off since finally getting a second win – beating BYU – and now it has to be perfect the rest of the way to go bowling. That’s not going to happen, but it has to at least be competitive down the stretch with a defense that’s been consistently among the nation’s worst.
Houston isn’t out of the American Athletic title hunt, but it’s going to take something miraculous to get close. However, it just needs one more win to go bowling, and it has a shot to do something great over the finishing kick coming off a Major Applewhite era-defining-so-far win over USF.
The Cougars might not have much of a downfield passing game, but they’re strong at keeping the chains moving on one side, and solid against the run on the other. With the rise of QB D’Eriq King – the hero of the late win over the Bulls – they should be able to move the ball at will on an ECU D that can’t come up with a third down stop.
The Pirates have the passing attack to make this interesting, but King will go off when he has to. However, the Cougars don’t score as much as they should.
