By Marc Lawrence — From the 2021 PLAYBOOK Football Preview Guide magazine: East Carolina’s Mike Houston enters his third campaign on a promising note.
We like what Houston did last season, as the Pirates led the nation with more starts by underclassmen than any team in the land.
With 10 starters back on offense, 10 on defense, and No. 10 in overall rankings in both Returning Production and Offensive Production, look for vast improvement in 2021.
Remember, after going 1-26 ATS against conference foes with a winning record from 2010-19, the Pirates are 7-1 ATS vs. the same since.
