East Carolina Pirates
East Carolina earned the program’s first national ranking in six years by beating two power-conference opponents, the last win coming with a record-setting offensive showing.
Robert Sampson scored 13 points and Maurice Kemp added 11 for East Carolina in a 62-43 win over SMU Wednesday night, securing the Pirates’ first home Conference USA victory of the season.
Tulsa’s G.J. Kinne had an amazing 2010 season, throwing for 3,650 yards for 38 touchdowns. In Conference USA, he’s just a face in the crowd.
