GREENVILLE, NC (AP) - Jeff Lebo is bringing his East Carolina program to the same court where he starred for North Carolina under Dean Smith and Roy Williams. Lebo's Pirates (6-1) are making their first trip to Chapel Hill on Saturday to play the No. 21 Tar Heels, while Lebo is facing his alma mater for the second time in 15 seasons as a head coach. Lebo said Thursday it was exciting to return to Chapel Hill and give his players "the opportunity to play on that stage in that atmosphere." Lebo is in his third season leading the Pirates. He played at UNC (7-2) from 1985-89 under Smith. Williams, now in his 10th season as UNC's coach, was an assistant to Smith during Lebo's first three seasons before taking over at Kansas.

Andy Dalton threw one touchdown pass and ran for another score, an opportunistic defense forced five turnovers and the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Philadelphia Eagles 34-13 Thursday night. The Bengals (8-6) took a half-game lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-6) for the last playoff spot in the AFC. But their game at Pittsburgh next week is far more important in the standings than this one. The Bengals would clinch their second straight playoff berth with a win over the Steelers if Pittsburgh loses to Dallas this Sunday. A loss to the Steelers, though, would likely ruin Cincinnati's chances. The Eagles' season was lost a long time ago. They fell to 4-10, losing double-digit games for the first time since 2005.
