We have finally reached week one of the college football season with a full plate of games. The best part of a new season is that every team feels like they can have a good season, and that this is the season where they can reach all their goals.
One of the games to take place in week one takes place at Rynearson Stadium. The Charlotte 49ers come to town to take on the Eastern Michigan Eagles.
These two teams played last year with Eastern Michigan blowing out the 49ers by a final score of 37-19.
For most teams last season would have been a disappointment, but not for the Charlotte 49ers. Last year they finished with a 4-8 record and in 4th place in the East Division of Conference USA.
That was double their win total the year before, and for a team entering just it’s third year in the FBS, anything above four wins would be considered a success, and if they could get to a bowl this year, it would be considered something very special.
Look for this team to really rely on the running game, not only in this game, but the whole season. They did lose their leading rusher from last year, but they have a couple of JUCO transfers who can come in and contribute right away.
Hasaan Klugh, the starting quarterback can also really run, and is a threat to go to the house on any play. If the 49ers want any chance to pull the upset in this game, they are going to need to have a special day on the ground.
Eastern Michigan Eagles
The Eastern Michigan Eagles were very happy with the way the season went last year. They won the games they were supposed to, and lost the games they were supposed to, on the way to a 7-6 record and a berth in the bowl game.
That was the first bowl game for the Eagles in over three decades. They will look to build on that success and take even another step forward this year.
Brogan Roback is the starting quarterback for this team, and is one of the best in the MAC conference. In ten games last year he threw for 2,694 yards and 18 touchdowns.
He was suspended to start the season last year, so that number should be able to be increased even more this year.
One of the brightest spots last year for the Eagles was in their defense. Now the defense wasn’t great by any means, but they actually looked like a unit that could slow down some teams, something they haven’t been able to do in a long time.
To win this game the defense is going to need to stop the run. In some games last year they got gashed in the run game, and that can’t happen in this one if they want to start the season 1-0.
