What to Know

East Carolina will square off against Gardner-Webb at 6 p.m. ET on Saturday at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. Both of these teams will be looking for a pick-me-up after considerable defeats in their previous games.

East Carolina kicked off 2019 on the road and hit a couple of potholes. They found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 6-34 punch to the gut against NC State last week. The result was an unpleasant reminder to the Pirates of the 3-58 loss they experienced in the two teams' previous head-to-head Dec. 1 of last year.

Gardner-Webb also just played their first game, also were on the road, and also didn't get the result they wanted. They ended up on the wrong side of a painful 28-49 walloping at Charlotte's hands. Gardner-Webb was surely aware of their 31-point disadvantage in the point spread, but the foreknowledge did nothing to prevent the result.

East Carolina is the favorite in this one, with an expected 31-point (!) margin of victory. Those burned by picking them against the spread last Saturday might want to keep in mind that the team has never dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.

Both teams will surely be scraping tooth and nail to get back into the win column after losses last week. We'll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
