East Carolina vs Campbell Game Preview

Why Campbell Will Win

They struggled last week in the 37-21 loss to William & Mary, but it stuffed Citadel, it’s generating a decent pass rush, and it’s been okay at taking the ball away.

What’s Going To Happen

Campbell will move the chains a bit and come up with a few scores, but East Carolina will be balanced and crisp after the first quarter.

The Pirates, though, haven’t had an easy time with FCS teams over the last few years – the blowout over Western Carolina in 2016 was the last layup. The team will wind down late, but there won’t be a whole lot of drama.

It’ll never seem like the Camels have the ball.
