Charlotte (4-7) vs. Florida Atlantic (5-6) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
This wasn’t supposed to be Florida Atlantic’s season. Before the season, this game was supposed to be just a formality to tune-up for the Conference USA championship. Instead, it needs to win this just to get bowl eligible.
This wasn’t supposed to be Charlotte’s season. Before the season, Charlotte was supposed to be in the hunt for a bowl game. Instead, it lost four of its last five games, is getting rid of head coach Brad Lambert, and it’s playing out the string.
The 49ers have been competitive, but they’re not able to do enough with the passing attack with an offensive line that’s way too mediocre. The run defense is good enough to keep the FAU running game from going off, but the Owl defense will step it up, too.
FAU couldn’t hold up against North Texas, but the defense shouldn’t have a problem against a 49er offense that will move the chains, but won’t go on enough scoring marches to overcome the early Owl avalanche.
At home in a game it needs to have, the FAU offense will crank it up, even if Devin Singletary and the ground attack don’t go off.
