MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Dominique Davis threw for 307 yards and three touchdowns and East Carolina rallied to defeat Memphis 35-17 on Saturday night.

East Carolina finished with 524 yards of total offense, including 367 through the air.

For Memphis (1-6, 0-3), the woes continued as the Tigers were held to 233 yards of total offense and 56 on the ground, while dropping their fourth straight.
