The Florida Atlantic Owls will visit the East Carolina Pirates on Thursday as each team plays their second game this season.
Florida Atlantic (0-1) looked awful in the seasons opening week as they were simply over matched by the Miami Hurricanes on both sides of the ball. East Carolina (1-0) is coming off a 447 yard passing game by Shane Carden that led them to a 52-39 win over Old Dominion.
The two teams will meet on Thursday, September 5, in Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium in Greenville, NC. Fox Sports 1 will carry the game which has a 7:30 pm ET start time.
Currently East Carolina is a 20.5 point favorite over Florida Atlantic after opening as a 15.5 point favorite. The Over/Under is set a 54 total points.
Last week Miami averaged over 7 yards per snap against Florida Atlantic. East Carolina had a potent offense last week and for much of the 2012 season so it appears the Owls could be up for another long day in this one.
