GREENVILLE, N.C. – East Carolina will make its eighth bowl appearance in the last nine years when it faces off against Southeastern Conference member Florida in the Birmingham Bowl TODAY at Historic Legion Field.
The Pirates, who will try to regain their momentum after closing the regular season with setbacks in three of the last five games, are in search of back-to back bowl victories (in successive seasons) for the first time since winning three straight in 1963, 1964 and 1965. ECU will also be looking to complete the campaign with at least nine wins for the second consecutive year (and fourth time since 2008).
