    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.
