What to Know
The Charlotte 49ers have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will square off against the Georgia State Panthers at 7 p.m. ET Saturday at Center Parc Stadium. The odds don’t look promising for Charlotte, but the bigger the opponent is, the harder they fall.
You’re bound to get a positive result if you outscore your opponent every quarter, and that’s exactly how it played out for the 49ers last week. Everything went their way against the Gardner-Webb Runnin’ Bulldogs as they made off with a 38-10 win. The contest was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Charlotte had established a 35-10 advantage.
Meanwhile, it’s never fun to lose, and it’s even less fun to lose 59-17, which was the final score in Georgia State’s tilt against the North Carolina Tar Heels last week. The Panthers were down 45-10 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. QB Cornelious Brown IV had a pretty forgettable game, throwing one interception with a passing completion percentage of only 46.15%.
Charlotte’s victory lifted them to 2-0 while Georgia State’s loss dropped them down to 0-2. We’ll find out if the 49ers can add another positive mark to their record or if Georgia State can shake off the defeat and take the spring out of Charlotte’s step.
