East Carolina Pirates Football Schedule

The East Carolina Pirates are ready to take to the gridiron this season and face off with some of the best teams in college football. The Pirates have loads of talent on both sides of the ball and could be a threat to make some serious noise in 2014. East Carolina is about to embark on their first season as a member of the American Athletic Conference, which has not existed until now. The Pirates played in Conference USA as recently as last season, and they finished their run in that conference on a high note. The Pirates put up a very solid 2013 season, winning 10 of their 13 contests. Six of those wins came against conference opponents, so it was a great way for the program to go out in Conference USA. The Pirates will have mostly new conference foes to deal with going forward, but there is the opportunity for some great new rivalries to develop thanks to the shift. The Pirates will get their first taste of some of these teams this season, as a bevy of tough matchups await in 2014.

The Pirates will have to really dig in when they visit the Virginia Tech Hokies this season. The Hokies have a reputation for being one of the best teams in the nation on a regular basis, so they should present quite the challenge for the Pirates in 2014. The Pirates will also visit the Cincinnati Bearcats this season in what could be one of the biggest matchups of the year for East Carolina. These are just two of the great games that await Pirates fans this season, so make sure to get out to as many contest as possible in 2013. You can be a part of all the football action you desire.


East Carolina Pirates Football History

The East Carolina Pirates first took to the field back in 1932 and have been competing at the highest level for many years. The Pirates always recruit well and seem to have some great players each and every season. The Pirates moved into Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium in 1963 and have called that venue home ever since then. The stadium has been expanded upon and now can seat up to 50,000 people. The Pirates began their history as an independent team before joining the North State Conference in 1947. They spent a few years in the 1960s as an independent again before joining the Southern Conference in 1965. In 1977 they began their third stint as an independent program before joining Conference USA in 1997, where they resided until 2014 when they became a member of the American Athletic Conference. East Carolina has had some great teams over the years, and the program has been consistent enough to post a winning record throughout school history.

The team has made it to a bowl game on 18 occasions, winning eight of those contests. The Pirates have won their conference's title seven times, two of those coming in Conference USA in the 2000s. This program has had some great players over the years, the best of which have been named as All-Americans. The Pirates have had a total of 20 athletes earn that distinction. The Pirates will add to their history this season as they hit the field to do battle with some quality clubs. Fans are hoping that this will be their best season yet.
