What to Know
The Charlotte 49ers will hit the road for the fourth straight week as they head to Apogee Stadium at 8 p.m. ET Saturday. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W.’
The 49ers didn’t finish too far behind, but the squad still lost 21-17 to the Florida Atlantic Owls last week. No one had a standout game offensively for Charlotte, but they got scores from WR Cameron Dollar and RB Tre Harbison III.
Meanwhile, the North Texas Mean Green came up short against the Southern Miss Golden Eagles last week, falling 41-31. Despite their loss, North Texas got to see several of their players rise to the challenge and make noteworthy plays. WR Deonte Simpson, who caught five passes for one TD and 113 yards, was the best among equals.
This next contest is expected to be close, with Charlotte going off at just a 2.5-point favorite. They hadn’t treated fans wells this season, but they at least enjoy a 2-0-1 record against the spread.
The losses put Charlotte at 0-2 and North Texas at 1-2. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The 49ers come into the matchup boasting the fifth fewest passing yards allowed per game per game in the nation at 151. But the Mean Green rank 11th in the nation when it comes to passing yards per game, with 335 on average. We’ll see which of these strengths — offense or defense — will win out.
