Scouting ECU: Defense

Posted: October 8, 2014 in Football

The ECU Pirates run a 3-4 defensive set that allows them to mix up their looks at the snap. They are very stout against the run but have given up some yards in the passing game. If USF wants to pull the upset, they will have to sustain drives and keep the ball, driving the course of the field against this defense.
