The 49ers of Charlotte head down south to Boca Raton to face the Owls of FAU on Saturday.
Neither team was expected to do much this year in terms of winning, but both have managed to under perform even by those low standards so far.
Unless the impending hurricane severely damages the stadium, one of these teams will be forced to get their second win of the season Saturday.
Charlotte is currently on a three game losing streak and were blown out at home against Old Dominion 52-17 last week.
Their only win of the season was a 47-14 victory over Elon, a team that I was not even aware had a football program.
While FAU has not been quite as bad, they are on a four game skid although it has come against tougher competition.
The 2016 season for the Charlotte 49ers so far is best known for introducing the world to Lamar Jackson. Jackson and Louisville put 56 on the 49ers in the first half in a 70-14 blowout.
Looking back, this can be forgiven, and they came back strong at home the next week and defeated Elon 47-14. However, they have not won since and somehow managed to allow Old Dominion to 52 against them at home last week.
The Charlotte defense has allowed 44.2 points per game in five games this year, and will have to figure out the defense to have any chance of turning it around.
Nationally, they rank 115th in yards allowed per game, 123rd in passing yards allowed and 126th in points allowed per game.
The Owls had high hopes this year and started the season relatively well with a 38-30 home win against Southern Illinois. Things were pretty much all downhill from there.
They were competitive early against Miami but the Hurricanes took over and won 38-10. They were then destroyed the following week 63-7 against Kansas State.
They recovered somewhat over the next two weeks and lost heart-breakers by a total of six points.
FAU seems to be getting on the right track if they can only close games out. They lost to instate rival Florida International last week on a missed late field goal.
They are lead by quarterback Jason Driskell who has thrown for 995 yards with four touchdowns and four interceptions.

The records show that these two teams are evenly matched, but FAU is has played much stiffer competition so far. They are also clearly the more talented team and have home field advantage.
Defense is the biggest problem for both squads, but Charlotte has more glaring holes.

While both teams struggle on defense, neither has shown that they can consistently put points on the board either.
While the talent of FAU should overpower that of Charlotte, the deficiencies of both will cancel each other out.
