The Charlotte 49ers and Florida Atlantic Owls meet up in Week 0 at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton, Florida. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. ET and the game will air on CBS Sports Network. The 49ers finished with a 5-7 record last season, and 3-5 in the Conference USA. The Owls also finished 5-7, and 3-5 in the Conference USA.
The last time these two teams met was October 2021. FAU came out on top 38-9, and tallied 427 total yards. Charlotte has some nice continuity on their offense with eight starters returning. Defense will likely win this game, but it depends on which team plays more of it. Neither pass defense is superb, so expect to see some points scored in this one.
Florida Atlantic is a 7-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, and -260 on the moneyline. That makes Charlotte a +220 moneyline underdog, with the point total set at 59.
