East Carolina (2-2) vs. Old Dominion (1-2) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Old Dominion has been able to hang around with the Virginias and Virginia Techs in the world, but it hasn’t been able to beat them. Now it gets to hang with to someone it can potentially get by.
East Carolina has two wins over FCS teams, but lost to NC State and Navy by a combined score of 76-16 – now it has to get the offense to work against a team it should be able to beat.
The Pirates are getting the running game going, but there’s not enough happening with Holton Ahlers not pushing the ball down the field enough and with just two touchdown passes. That’s Patrick Mahomes, though, compared to what ODU is getting out of Stone Smartt and a passing attack that just can’t get going.
Which offense will be just a wee bit more inept? The East Carolina lines are playing just a bit better than the ODU lines – the Pirates will generate a pass rush the Monarchs won’t. It won’t matter – ECU won’t be able to run the ball a lick.
Don’t expect fireworks, but watch out for one or two big plays from the Monarchs to survive in a dogfight.
