GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) — East Carolina is bringing its high-scoring offense to a new conference, along with the goal of topping what was the program's best season in two decades.

The Pirates, 10-3 last year, have left Conference USA for the American Athletic Conference with a returning quarterback, a record-chasing receiver and a defense aiming to build of last season's improvement.

Senior quarterback Shane Carden, a 4,000-yard passer, said this year's success depends on the Pirates' mental approach. He says the Pirates have to prepare every week "like it's a championship game."

East Carolina won 10 games for the first time since 1991, including road romps against Atlantic Coast Conference programs North Carolina and North Carolina State.
