East Carolina University and Old Dominion University have agreed to renew their series in football, according to an ECU release. The teams, which have met a total of three times in previous seasons, will add six games to their series schedules through the 2031 campaign.

ODU, a member of Conference-USA, will travel to Greenville, North Carolina on Sept. 10, 2022 to kick-off the renewed series. They will also face the Pirates in Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium in 2029 and 2031 with ECU visiting S.B. Ballard Stadium in Norfolk, Virginia in 2024, 2027 and 2030.

ECU last played the Monarchs on Sept. 28, 2019 in Norfolk, defeating ODU by a score of 24-21. In that game, Pirate quarterback Holton Ahlers passed for 202 yards and two touchdowns while completing 8-of-21 pass attempts.

Wide receiver Blake Proehl was a 100-yard receiver that day on two receptions, including a 72-yarder. Running back Demetrius Mauney rushed for a team-high 53 yards on 10 attempts as the Pirates racked up 309 yards of total offense.
