ECU and Coastal Carolina Announce Two-Game Series

East Carolina and Coastal Carolina have announced they will play against each other in 2025 and 2028. This announcement was made together by both schools on Wednesday.

These two teams have only played against each other once before. This game happened on December 27, 2022, at the TicketSmarter Birmingham Bowl. East Carolina won that game with a score of 53-29. This was the 10th time East Carolina won a bowl game.

The first game of the series will be played at Benton Field inside Brooks Stadium on September 13, 2025. The second game will be at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium on September 9, 2028.

Jon Gilbert, the Athletics Director at East Carolina, said, “We are excited about this series with Coastal Carolina. Both schools have fans who really love their teams, and this series will be something that everyone will enjoy.”

Coastal Carolina is now part of ECU’s 2025 schedule. They will also play against NC State, Campbell, and BYU that year. Coastal Carolina is the third team that ECU will play against in 2028. The other two teams are NC State and Wake Forest.
