East Carolina Vs. Navy Game Time, TV Schedule, Announcers And More

A pair of 2-4 teams meet Saturday afternoon in Annapolis, each desperate for a win after a rough start to their respective seasons. The Midshipmen are looking to snap a four game losing streak when they host the Pirates. Here is everything you need to know about Saturday's game:

Who: East Carolina Pirates (2-4, 2-1 Conference USA) vs. Navy Midshipmen (2-4)

Where: Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium

When: 3:30 EST

TV Information: Josh Lewin and Randy Cross have the call on CBS Sports Network.

Spread: Navy by 8.5.

Last game: The Midshipmen lost another heartbreaker last Saturday, falling 21-20 at Rutgers. East Carolina ended a two game skid with a 35-17 win over woeful Memphis.

Last season: This is not a typo - Navy beat East Carolina 76-35 last season, in the Pirates' house. Unfortunately for East Carolina, their rush defense is still awful this year (ranked 85th nationally against the run). It could be another long day for East Carolina defenders against a Navy triple option attack that might run the ball 60 times Saturday.

Key absences: The Pirates will be missing three key contributors on offense, making the task of avenging last year's loss that much more difficult. Guard Adhem Elsawi and center Doug Polochak are out with knee injuries, and wide receiver Justin Jones will miss the game with a wrist injury. Darius Staten, Jared Marks, and David Wright are all listed as questionable for the Midshipmen.
