Recap: East Carolina vs. Tulane

Greenville, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Shane Carden threw for 358 yards and a score as the East Carolina Pirates whipped up on the Tulane Green Wave, 34-6, in an American Athletic Conference brawl at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.

Carden converted 31 of his 44 pass attempts for the Pirates (7-3, 4-2 AAC), with nine of those completions going to Justin Hardy who not only finished with 104 yards, he also moved into first place on the NCAA's all-time receptions list with 355.

The Green Wave (3-8, 2-5) was led by Tanner Lee who converted 25-of-43 for 301 yards through the air, but he was sacked four times and tossed an interception.

ECU moved out to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter thanks to a 35-yard field goal by Warren Harvey and a four-yard TD pass from Carden to Isaiah Jones.

At the 9:22 mark of the second Tulane stopped the momentum of the Pirates temporarily with a 33-yard Andrew DiRocco field goal.

The East Carolina advantage grew to 17-3 late in the first half thanks to a 15-yard TD run by Breon Allen.

The only points of the third were attributed to Harvey as he converted a 33- yard field goal, making the score 20-3.

The Pirates then added rushing touchdowns of seven and eight yards in the fourth by Marquez Grayson and Carden, respectively, but not before DiRocco capped a 13-play, 53-yard drive with a 40-yard field goal for the visitors.

Tulane was limited to just 325 yards of total offense on the day, compared to 497 yards for the hosts.

Hardy entered the contest with 346 catches in his career, three shy of the NCAA record set by Oklahoma's Ryan Broyles between 2008-11.
