    GREENVILLE, N.C.     East Carolina will officially wrap-up its 2019 non-conference schedule by visiting Norfolk for a 6 p.m. (ET) matchup against Old Dominion on Saturday. The Pirates will be trying to post their third non-league victory of the year - a first since 2014 - when they battle the Conference USA-member Monarchs. ECU will also attempt to post a five-game mark of 3-2 for the first time since the 2015 campaign while also vying to snap a 10-game overall road skid dating back to 2017 before hosting Temple for its first home American Athletic Conference contest next Thursday.

    East Carolina leads 2-0 ... The Pirates used a then-school-record passing performance (447 yards, 46 completions) from Shane Carden to open the series with a victory in Greenville six years ago before benefiting from Jake Verity's game-winning field goal last season.

    Including Mike Houston's prior eight-year tenure as a collegiate head coach at Lenoir-Rhyne, The Citadel and James Madison, Saturday's game will mark his first-ever meeting against Old Dominion.

    Saturday will be Bobby Wilder's third matchup against the Pirates (see above, earlier meetings in 2013 and 2018) ... ECU never competed against Maine (1990-2006) and Boston College (1988-89) while Wilder was a member of those staff s as an assistant.
