We have reached week five of the college football season, and most teams have entered conference play. One of those conference games is a Conference USA showdown on Saturday night.
The Charlotte 49ers make the trip to Florida to take on the FIU Panthers. These two teams have played twice in their history with the Panthers winning both games.
The Charlotte 49ers are still trying to make the transition from the FCS level to the FBS level and it showing with the results on the field.
They come into this game with an 0-4 record having played three FBS teams and one FCS level team. In the three games against FBS level competition they have scored a total of 14 points.
The biggest issue they have is at the quarterback position and I am actually surprised they haven’t made a change yet.
Junior Hasaan Klugh has played in all four games and has only thrown for 496 yards and four touchdowns the season.
He has also thrown seven interception which is way too many for an FBS level quarterback through four games.
To win this game the offense is going to need to better. Of course the defense needs to be good too but if the 49ers can’t score any points it won’t matter.
They need to get Klugh settled in early and he needs to do a good job of holding onto the ball and not throw any interceptions.
On the other side of this match up is the FIU Panthers who come into this game with a 1-2 record but they really haven’t looked impressive in either of the games they have won.
In their two victories they have only scored a total of 30 points, but this is a good game for them to increase on that number.
For the Panthers it hasn’t really been about racking up yards, as they average 357 yards per game. The biggest issue they have had is actually putting the ball in the end zone once they drive the ball down the field.
To win this game the offense needs to be better and the defense can’t let the 49ers get settled in.
They really need to take advantage of the 49ers weakness on the offensive line and really try to make the quarterback have little time and force him into bad throws.

The Panthers are a bit better on offense and that will be the little difference they need. FIU wins a game that easily covers the under.
