College Football Update: The gravy train derails for East Carolina

Just like that, the undefeated season ends for East Carolina. The Pirates were knocked off this afternoon by the NC State Wolfpack in overtime. NC State won the game 30-24.

Andre Brown scored the game winning touchdown in the first overtime when he ran a touchdown in from 10 yards. Brown had 75 yards rushing on the day.

Russell Wilson had a strong day for the Wolfpack. He completed 21-of-31 for 209 yards and three touchdowns.

This game will no doubt hurt East Carolina's chances at making a BCS bowl game. It is by far a huge dent to their plans.
