East Carolina football is at No. 23 SMU today. Here are three Mustang players to know:

James Proche

There is myriad of playmakers on the Mustang offense, but when QB Shane Buechele really needs a play, he looks to Proche. The senior is an All-American candidate who ranks second in the country with 74 receptions. He also is coming off a season-high 13 catches against Memphis last week.

Trevor Denbow

Denbow is solid as a starting safety on defense, but most unique about him is he also is the Mustangs’ punter. He has a long of 72 yards to help boost his season average to 39.11 on 27 attempts. SMU also uses starting quarterback Shane Buechele on pooch punts.

Xavier Jones

SMU’s starting running back has 17 total touchdowns this year, which is 12 more than the Pirates’ leader in quarterback Holton Ahlers’ five rushing TDs. Jones just had his lowest rushing output, carrying 11 times for 22 yards and a touchdown versus Memphis a week ago.

East Carolina’s football team was dealt that harsh reality in its first two games of November, scoring 43 in a three-point loss to Cincinnati at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium and then on Saturday producing even more points — 51 — but also allowing more in a…

Let's expand this exercise, for one week, to include South Carolina. The Battle for The Carolinas.

Clemson, obviously, would be No. 1. South Carolina would be fourth thanks to its win over Georgia.

No. 2? Appalachian State, which would own road victories over No. 3 North Carolina and fourth-ranked…

DALLAS

Tucked in a super clean and sometimes sleepy nook in Dallas is the campus at SMU, a private school that has stirred to life this fall behind a nationally ranked football team that provides excitement for its tidy, polite fan base with a fun-to-watch, prolific offense and an outside-the-box…

DALLAS — SMU continued its banner football season, giving some of its longtime fans more memories of the 1980s with an offense that produced droves of points and yards again at Gerald J. Ford Stadium.

East Carolina was great on offense Saturday as well, gaining more yards than its nationally-…

Seth LeDay's jumper with 14 seconds to play in the second half on Friday night pulled the East Carolina basketball team within a point of Navy, but when the Pirates fouled in the final minute, the Midshipmen made their free throws to preserve a 62-57 win in the Veteran's Classic in Annapolis.

Q: What is your favorite from of social media?

A: Probably Instagram, because I just like looking at the pictures.

Q: Could you kick with your left foot?

A: I could, but it would probably hurt. I don’t think I could very well, maybe like 12 yards. If my other leg fell off or something and I…
