The Charlotte 49ers will meet up with the Clemson Tigers in college football activity on Saturday.
Charlotte enters this game at 2-1 overall. The 49ers fell to Appalachian State in Week 2 but otherwise have beaten Gardner-Webb 49-28 and UMass 52-17.
In the UMass game, 49ers QB Chris Reynolds posted 155 yards and two touchdowns while Ben Lemay led the rush on 113 yards. Tyler Ringwood also hauled in two passes for 46 yards and two touchdowns.
Over on the Clemson side, they’re 3-0 this year. The Tigers have thus far taken out Georgia Tech 52-14, Texas A&M 24-10 and Syracuse 41-6.
In the Syracuse game, Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence had 395 yards with three touchdowns and two picks, while Tee Higgins led the receivers on 150 yards from seven grabs. Travis Etienne had 76 yards on 14 carries as well.
The 49ers are 4-1 ATS in their last five after an ATS win and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games. Charlotte is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 overall and 5-12 in their last 17 non-conference games.
Meanwhile, the Tigers are 5-1 ATS in their last six overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five after a straight-up win. Clemson is 6-2 ATS in their last eight after an ATS win and 7-3 ATS versus a team with a winning record.
Charlotte has looked pretty solid this season, and even in their loss they hung around with a good Appalachian State team the whole time. Granted, the competition level hasn’t been quite up to snuff but the Niners have performed admirably with their schedule.
Clemson is going to win this game obviously, but I think the 49ers have enough talent to get into this thick line. I’m going Charlotte.
