The Old Dominion Monarchs and the Charlotte 49ers will be meeting up on the college football gridiron on Saturday at Jerry Richardson Stadium.
The Monarchs are 0-2 on the season so far. Old Dominion has taken losses to Liberty 52-10 in their opener and FIU 28-20 this past Saturday.
Steven Williams leads the Monarchs QBs on 292 yards with one TD, while Jeremy Cox is the top rusher on 77 yards and 25 carries. Old Dominion’s lead receiver is Jonathan Duhart with 233 yards and two TDs.
Charlotte had some luck opening the year, taking a 34-10 win over Forham in their first game. Things didn’t go well against Appalachian State this past Saturday though, as the Niners lost 45-9.
49ers QB Chris Reynolds has 375 yards with one TD and one pick, and Benny LeMay leads the rush on 170 yards and two scores. Victor Tucker is the top Niners receiver on 160 yards and a TD from 11 grabs.
The Monarchs are 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 on turf and 2-5 ATS in their last seven following an ATS loss. Old Dominion is also 1-4 ATS in their last five conference games and 0-4 ATS in their last four games in September.
Meanwhile, the 49ers are 5-1 ATS in the last six home games and 4-1 ATS in the last five conference games. Charlotte is 5-2 ATS in the last seven overall and 2-7 ATS in their last nine in September.
There’s not much to like about Old Dominion so far, and nothing to indicate they’ll dig themselves out of this hole they’ve begun in the early-going. The one bright spot on offense for the Monarchs is Duhart, and he’ll have to go crazy statistically if he wants to keep his team win this game. I’m not super-jazzed about Charlotte here either, but they’re the lesser of two evils. Give me the Niners.
