C-USA: Pirates run wild on Army

October 6, 2002

GREENVILLE, N.C. -- East Carolina coach Steve Logan put his team through a tough week of practice after a 20-point loss to West Virginia. The Pirates players might not have liked it, but they can't argue with the results.

Art Brown rushed for 161 yards and scored four touchdowns to lead East Carolina over Army 59-24 on Saturday.

The Pirates tied Southern Miss atop the league standings one week after allowing 536 rushing yards.

"It was full pads," Logan said of practices. "And it was full combat."

The Pirates scored 21 first-quarter points and jumped to a 38-17 halftime lead. Brown had touchdown runs of 1 and 31 yards plus a 2-yard touchdown catch in the first half to help put the Black Knights behind 28-3.

MIAMI (OHIO) 31, CINCINNATI 26: Luke Clemens ran for 114 yards and two touchdowns, and the visiting RedHawks took the lead for good on a fake field goal. Josh Betts threw a 13-yard touchdown to Tyler Vogel on the play, which put Miami up 24-21 with 6:55 left in the third quarter. Clemens added a 5-yard TD run four minutes later for Miami, which took a 57-43-7 lead in the fifth most-played series in Division I-A.

TCU 34, HOUSTON 17: LaTarence Dunbar returned a kickoff for a touchdown and Kenneth Hilliard returned an interception for a score for the host Horned Frogs. Dunbar returned the opening kick of the second half 96 yards to break a tie at 10. On the next Cougars possession, Hilliard intercepted Nick Eddy's pass and returned it 43 yards for a score.

TULANE 52, LA.-MONROE 9: J.P. Losman passed for 300 yards and four touchdowns for the visiting Green Wave, which took advantage of seven turnovers.
