East Carolina weathered an almost 90-minute lightning delay and then outlasted the UTEP Miners on Saturday night.

The Pirates outscored the Miners 21-8 after returning to the game from a lengthy second quarter hiatus and held on for a 28-18 triumph. With it, the Pirates jumped out to a 2-0 start in Conference USA and are halfway to bowl eligibility at 3-2 overall.


The teams weathered 80 minutes worth of storms that left the game at a standstill midway through the second with visiting UTEP hanging onto a 10-7 lead.

Storms in the past

There has been lightning at some games before. We just stay seated. Good to see some things have changed.
