East Carolina Outguns Memphis, 56-40


If you like offense, this was the game for you. East Carolina ran up 641 yards (491 on the ground) and 56 points to blow by the University of Memphis at the Tigers' homecoming game at the Liberty Bowl Saturday.

The Tigers' QB Martin Hankins threw for more than 400 yards and four touchdowns, but it wasn't enough for defense-challenged Memphis, who couldn't stop ECU running back Chris Johnson, who rushed for 301 yards.
