In Blacksburg today, the Hokies were talking East Carolina. Tech faces its first true road game of the year in Greenville Saturday where they hope to continue to run the football as Brad Zahar explains.

Blacksburg, Va. -

After a win against Western Carolina, it's on the road to East Carolina for a battle with the Pirates.

ECU is 2-0 coming off wins against Old Dominion and Florida Atlantic where they've scored 83 points in the two games.

The Hokies lead the all time series against ECU 12-to-5. The Pirates last win over the Hokies came back in 2008 in Charlotte, when ECU won on a blocked punt. While the two teams aren't conference rivals, it's a still a game the programs take pride in.

Kickoff is set for 12:05 from Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
