ECU's  home opener  kicked off right with thousands  invading campus to see the  Pirates take on Appalachian State at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium on Saturday.

Berkley Dr. was jam packed with tailgaters who say food, games, and good company makes for a good time.

Later during the game, more than 300 people had to get medical help for heat related problems.

ECU Police say no serious injuries were reported. Temperatures were in the low 90s along with high humidity. First aid areas and five ECU buses were used as cooling stations.

Above average temperatures are expected through the rest of this week.
