Ohio stopped ECU on its first drive to start the Beef 'O'Brady's bowl, but turned the ball back over to the Pirates on a Tyler Tettleton interception to Michael Dobson. The Pirates then went 55 yards, with most of those yards being picked up courtesy a 34-yard Vintavious Cooper run to the five-yard line.
Cam Worthy then hauled in a five-yard fade pass lofted high in the air by Carden to make it 7-0.
The two teams traded possessions, and after another Bobcat punt, ECU drove the field with Breon Allen scoring a short run to cap an 11-play 76-yard drive.
ECU has picked up 207 yards to Ohio's 72, and could be well on their way to a BIG offensive showing as many of our contributors predicted.
