Another Trip to the Gulf Coast for Pirates

Now that the GMAC Bowl officials have selected East Carolina (6-5) to represent Conference USA against Mid-American Conference opponent Marshall University (10-1) in the 3rd Annual GMAC Bowl. We have once again selected The Beau Rivage Hotel and Casino in Biloxi as the official GMAC Bowl headquarters.

For special bowl room rates of $69 contact the Beau Rivage Resort at 1 888-383-7037. Mention the "bowl special" and that you saw the deal on The Beau Rivage is located on the water in Biloxi Mississippi, a one hour drive from Mobile. The last time ECU played in Mobile, many Pirate fans stayed at the Beau Rivage and many more visited during their stay.

The game will be played on December 19, 2001 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium, and will be televised nationally by ESPN2. Kickoff is set for 7:00 pm CST.
