History: First match-up between these two teams.
Tulane ECU is in their first year in the American Athletic Conference
UCONN - OUT - T Dalton Gifford - leg, out indefinitely, DB Ellis Marder - lower body, out indefinitely - PROBABLE - P Justin Wain, leg
- LB Marquise Vann has at least nine tackles in all but one game
- UConn and ECU share a former head coach, as Skip Holtz manned the sidedlines for the Huskies from 1994-1998 and for East Carolina from 2005-2009
- Pirates head coach Ruffin McNeil was a three-year starter at ECU, graduating in 1980
- Over 50 different players have seen action on the field for the Huskies in each game
- 23 players saw their first collegiate action this season, including 9 true freshmen
- There is a Virginia Tech/Miami game on ESPN, and NFL Thursday Night Football as well, so hopefully this blowout can stay relatively under the radar
And awayyy we go.
