GREENVILLE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- West Virginia must get excited when it sees East Carolina on its schedule.

Rasheed Marshall threw a career-high four touchdown passes and Quincy Wilson rushed for 147 yards and a TD as the Mountaineers rolled to a 48-7 triumph over the Pirates.

West Virginia rushed for more than 500 yards in a rout of East Carolina last season and nearly duplicated that mark Saturday.

Marshall completed 11-of-18 passes for 194 yards and Wilson led a balanced running attack as the Mountaineers recorded 555 yards, including 361 on the ground.

Kay-Jay Harris ran for 78 yards and a score and Travis Garvin caught a pair of touchdowns for West Virginia (1-1), which has won 13 of its last 15 meetings with East Carolina.

Marshall threw his final touchdown pass 29 seconds into the second quarter and Harris and Jason Colson followed with rushing TDs as the Mountaineers jumped out to a 48-0 lead.

East Carolina (0-2) avoided a shutout when Vonta Leach capped an 80-yard drive with a one-yard touchdown with 10:35 remaining.

Pirates quarterback Desmond Robinson completed 21-of-26 passes for 194 yards. His favorite target was Terrance Cooper, who caught a career-high 12 passes for a career-high 140 yards.
