RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Shane Carden threw three touchdown passes and ran for two scores to help East Carolina beat North Carolina State 42-28 on Saturday.

Justin Hardy had a first-quarter TD catch for the Pirates (9-2), who dominated the Wolfpack (3-8) to reach nine wins for the third time in six years. East Carolina led 21-7 at halftime and 35-7 entering the fourth on the way to the season's second road win against an instate rival from the Atlantic Coast Conference, not to mention its fifth straight overall.

The Pirates were stepping away from their Conference USA championship chase in their final year in that league. They travel to Marshall next week with a chance to clinch an appearance in the league title game as well as their first 10-win season in 22 years.

Brandon Mitchell threw four TD passes for the Wolfpack, three coming after the Pirates had built a big lead.
