Earlier this season East Carolina defeated North Carolina 55-31, and on Saturday the Pirates beat North Carolina State 42-28. Both wins came on the road, which means that East Carolina is only a victory over Duke away from winning a North Carolina trifecta.
Unfortunately, unless the two meet in a bowl game, that matchup isn't going to happen, but the good news is that didn't stop somebody from claiming ownership of the state for the Pirates on Saturday with this billboard.
