Magazu's pick leads Pirates to road win

Posted: Updated:

East Carolina defensive back Damon Magazu has a knack for the big play.

As a freshman he made the interception in the end zone in overtime to lead East Carolina past rival North Carolina State.

He's had big interceptions against Virginia Tech and Marshall in recent seasons.

On Saturday he turned his attention to Middle Tennessee State.

Magazu made a key, fourth quarter interception as the Pirates held on for the 24-17 victory.

"I knew I could take a chance on the interception," said Magazu. "I knew if I missed the ball the linebacker was there to make the tackle."

East Carolina would take advantage of the turnover and go on for the C-USA win over the Blue Raiders.
