ECU vs. UNC set for 12:00pm

This upcoming weekend of baseball against UNC is only making us all more eager to see the Pirates play them on the field this upcoming football season.  The anticipation is over and we now know what time this matchup will take place.   East Carolina will travel to Chapel Hill on September 19 for a 12:00 pm battle against UNC.  This time was scheduled to accommodate ESPN or ESPN 2 coverage.  According to

The Tar Heels, one of two Atlantic Coast Conference opponents on ECU’s 2009 schedule, will host the Pirates for the first time since 2001 after more recent contests at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium in 2003 and 2007 – the latter resulting in a 34-31 East Carolina triumph.

With the addition of the North Carolina game, the Pirates’ television broadcast schedule now features at least four regular season appearances on the ESPN family of networks. The other three are slated in successive fashion later in the campaign, including a Tuesday, Oct. 27 visit to Memphis, a Thursday, Nov. 5 home matchup against Virginia Tech and a Sunday, Nov. 15 clash at Tulsa.

I know we all wish the game was later in the day, so we could allow more time for tailgating, but UNC fans only have wine and cheese between the times of 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.

    I have to believe that at least a few other ECU games will be televised, even if it is locally, including the Appalachian State game, and possibly the West Virginia game.
