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.
