Lucas: Rapid Reactions - East Carolina

There are plenty of ugly numbers from Saturday's loss, none more so than the final score of 70-41. East Carolina racked up the most yards ever against North Carolina (789), tied the most points ever scored against Carolina (70) and has now amassed 1,392 yards in two games against the Tar Heels over the last two years. (GoHeels.com)

East Carolina beats North Carolina 70-41

Shane Carden threw for 438 yards and four touchdowns to help East Carolina beat North Carolina 70-41 on Saturday, turning in another dominating performance against its instate rival. And they earned this one in record-setting fashion, from the biggest home crowd in school history to setting a new program mark with 789 total yards. It was also the most points and yards ever allowed by the Tar Heels. (ESPN.com)

ECU wide receiver Cam Worthy suspended

In a press release, ECU announced that Cam Worthy has been suspended for the next two games. The reason given? A school student code of conduct violation, which stemmed from, the release stated, a late-summer verbal disagreement between Worthy and another male student on campus. (NBC Sports)

Tar Heels plenty motivated heading into ECU rematch

East Carolina put up 55 points and 603 yards against North Carolina last year with an offense that featured quarterback Shane Carden, who accounted for six touchdowns, and Justin Hardy, who is in reach of the FBS record for career receptions. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Batten: There's more at stake this time around for UNC, ECU

Pride has been the only real thing at stake in most of the 16 football meetings between East Carolina and North Carolina. Sure, the Pirates gained a bit of notoriety for blasting the Tar Heels 55-31 last season en route to a 10-3 finish. But there's never been a conference championship or bowl bid at stake in the series, or even a national ranking threatened. (Fayetteville Observer)

UNC/ECU: Keys to the Game

The Pirates have to win the battle up front on both offense and defense. Defensively, ECU faced one of the top offensive lines in the country two weeks ago against South Carolina and held their own. Last week, with the return of big Terry Williams, the defensive line played even better and held 17th-ranked Virginia Tech to 7 first half points and 21 for the game. (Bonesville.net)

Five questions to ponder before kickoff

Does UNC’s defense have an answer for ECU’s Shane Carden? After throwing for 427 yards and accounting for four more scores last week against Virginia Tech, the Pirates’ senior quarterback is poised for yet another big game against a UNC defense that has surrendered an average of 427.5 yards in their first two games against Liberty and San Diego State. (Wilmington Star News)

Six storylines: UNC vs. ECU

Coming into the season, the biggest question mark for the North Carolina offense was the inexperience along the offensive line. Heading into their first road game of the year, the offensive line will be without Landon Turner, their leader and most experienced player, who is out due to injury. True freshman Jared Cohen will fill in at right guard during Turner’s absence. (Carolina Blue)

ACC viewer's guide: Week 4

UNC at ECU, 3:30 pm, ESPNU: A shootout between Marquise Williams and Shane Carden could be on the horizon. And given UNC's upcoming slate -- at Clemson, Virginia Tech, at Notre Dame -- it better hope it can keep up this time around. UNC now has 10 non-offensive touchdowns since last season, tied for the second-best mark in the nation during that span. (ESPN.com)

Will Tar Heels take their ‘little brother’ seriously this time?

The Pirates 55-31 pounding of the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill was anything but a fluke. But even after getting outgained 603-465 and being dominated in every phase of the game, UNC’s players still couldn’t bring themselves to admit that they’d been beaten by a better team. (Wilmington Star News)

UNC-ECU Preview

Prior to accepting the head coaching job at his Alma Mater, Ruffin McNeill held mostly defensive coaching positions over the last three decades, while Fedora has worked in more offensive-minded capacities. Over the years, both coaches have had a long history of being pitted against each other. (Inside ECU Sports)
