The major development this weekend in college football in North Carolina was East Carolina’s 41-19 rout of the North Carolina Tar Heels in Greenville.

ECU replaces UNC in our “Battle for N.C.” rankings.

1. N.C. State

Record: 2-0.

Why No. 1? The Wolfpack rolled to a 41-7 win against Georgia State for a second straight victory against an overmatched opponent. Things pick up in a major way this week when No. 14 West Virginia visits Raleigh.

2. Duke

Record: 2-0.

Why No. 2? Because starting quarterback Daniel Jones got hurt in a 21-7 win at Northwestern. Duke also opened with a nice victory against Army and would be No. 1, but it is a big blow if Jones is facing a lengthy absence with a clavicle injury.

3. Appalachian State

Record: 1-1.

Why No. 3? Appalachian State showed off its firepower in Week 2, cruising to a 45-9 win at lowly Charlotte. Like N.C. State (West Virginia) and Duke (at Baylor), ASU has a big matchup next in Boone against a consistent and quality program in Southern Miss.

4. Wake Forest

Record: 2-0.

Why No. 4? Wake is quietly 2-0 and set for a daunting five-game stretch that includes playing Notre Dame, Clemson and Florida State. It starts Thursday night in beginning Atlantic Coast Conference action at home against Boston College.

5. East Carolina

Record: 1-1.

Why No. 5? The case could be made for North Carolina A&T here, but A&T shouldn’t have defeated ECU and it wouldn't have happened without a few critical giveaways by the Pirates. ECU then proved it was better, on the scoreboard and in reality, than UNC with a signature and needed 41-19 win.

The escape happened in overtime, when UCF…

Jon Gilbert does not want to be the face of East Carolina athletics, and he said as much on Tuesday afternoon.

That certainly does not mean ECU’s new athletics director doesn’t want to make all the big decisions for Pirate sports and plot their collective strategy for success, but…

Last year, East Carolina women’s lacrosse was new enough that the team and its coaches did not yet know what they didn’t know.

As the team’s second-ever season is set to begin, so too is a whole new understanding of the game and its many nuances at the top college level. The 2018…

One intriguing aspect of Wednesday night’s 85-74 victory for Temple basketball in Minges Coliseum was that Temple’s best player is senior guard Shizz Alston Jr. and East Carolina’s best player is freshman forward Jayden Gardner.

The pair of prolific scorers did not disappoint,…
