C-USA: East Carolina denies Army 3rd straight win

GREENVILLE, N.C. - James Pinkey threw three touchdown passes to Bobby Good to help East Carolina beat Army 38-28 Saturday, ending the Black Knights' first winning streak in seven years.

Army snapped a 19-game losing streak earlier this month with a victory over Cincinnati, then beat South Florida before taking a weekend off.

But Army couldn't make it three in a row. The Pirates piled up 462 yards of offense and forced two turnovers in the second half to bounce back from a 51-10 loss last week to Southern Mississippi.

"You have to give credit to East Carolina, they came out and played well," Army coach Bobby Ross said. "I was worried about that, to be very honest, because when you look at them on film, you can see they have some talent."

Pinkey finished 26-for-36 for 285 yards and made East Carolina coach John Thompson a winner for only the third time in 19 games. Good had eight catches for 118 yards.

"I think we were 3-0 in turnovers. That's how you win. You win by stopping the run, running the football and winning the turnovers," Thompson said.

CINCINNATI 21, TCU 10: Richard Hall rushed 29 times for 143 yards and a touchdown to lead the host Bearcats, who scored touchdowns on three of their first five possessions and hung on despite only crossing midfield once in the second half, and that drive ended with a missed field goal.

The Horned Frogs had three drives into Cincinnati territory in the second half but came away with only three points.

HOUSTON 24, TULANE 3: Kevin Kolb threw for 267 yards and ran for a touchdown as host the Cougars broke a four-game losing streak.

Houston won for the first time since beating Army on Sept. 18.

The Cougars scored on a fumble recovery, and held Tulane to 250 yards and four third-down conversions. The defensive performance was surprising considering Houston opponents averaged 37 points the past four games and Tulane beat UAB 59-55 last week.
