East Carolina is looking to correct a quirk in its series history against Temple on Saturday at 3 p.m. at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. The Pirates (4-4, 2-2 AAC) have never beaten the Owls (3-5, 1-3) at home in three games while both were members of the American Athletic Conference.
Temple is in shock after losing its last three straight games heading into Saturday’s game by an average score of 45-8. A victory would give the Pirates a four-game winning streak at home in AAC play, which would be the longest ever.
