Conference USA has announced ECU’s 2013 opponents. Though a week-by-week schedule has not been released, this schedule at least shows Pirate fans both conference and non-conference foes as well as home and away games. The schedule features four Conference USA newcomers, the reigning C-USA champion and three teams that played in bowl games.
Conference: FAU, Southern Miss, Tulsa, UAB
Non-conference: ODU and Virginia Tech
Conference: FIU, Marshall, Middle Tennessee, Tulane
Non-conference: North Carolina and NC State
This will be ECU’s last year in the conference before moving to the Big East. The Pirates have not won the conference since beating Houston in the 2009 Conference USA Title game.
