ORLANDO, Fla. — Central Florida overturned an early but commanding East Carolina lead on Thursday night, scoring on eight straight possessions from the first quarter to the finish line en route to a 40-20 Conference USA win inside Bright House Networks Stadium.
The Knights (3-2, 1-0 C-USA) claimed the critical C-USA clash with a couple of long touchdowns by wide receiver/returner Quincy McDuffie and a defense that steadily turned up the heat on quarterback Shane Carden and the ECU offense.
The Pirates (3-3, 2-1) did not score another touchdown after getting a pair in the first quarter and briefly taking a 14-0 edge.
