The Seminoles travel to North Coarlina State Saturday.

East Caroline 48, USF 28: It doesn't matter where USF goes. Disaster follows.

The Bulls, relocated to Boca Raton and FAU's stadium, might as well have been at home as close as they came to covering East Carolina receiver C.J. Johnson.

Johnson caught seven passes for 107 yards and four touchdowns as the Pirates raced to a 41-7 halftime lead. Quarterback Holton Ahlers threw for 465 yards and six scores.

The Bulls scored three times in the second half to make the score closer, but it was clear that East Carolina was going to win over the 1-4 Bulls.

Quarterback Gerri Bohanon ended up with 253 yards passing. Jim Horn Jr. cough six psss off 150 yards.

The Bulls play at Cincinnati on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
