11/23/18 – ECU Pirates @ Cincinnati Bearcats
Not much to say about the UCF game – they are one of the best teams in the country and our Bearcats are one of the biggest surprise, up-and-comers in the country. We are incredibly proud of this squad and, despite not being quite on that level yet, have no doubt that our time is coming…
Moving on…it’s time to come back to Nippert to honor our Seniors:
- Kahlil Lewis – WR
- Tyrell Gilbert – CB
- Malik Clements – LB
- Hayden Moore – QB
- Chris Murphy – S
- Marquise Copeland – DT
- Tinashe Bere – LB
- Kevin Mouhon – DE
- Kimoni Fitz – DE
- Keith Minor – OL
- Kyle Trout – OL
- Dino Boyd – OL
- Garrett Campbell – OL
- Chris Ferguson – OL
- Cortez Broughton – DT
With a W against East Carolina, the Bearcats will secure 10 wins for just the 7th time in program history and will have an opportunity to later tie the 2nd best win total (11) in program history during bowl season. The Pirates may be just what the doctor ordered…
