Charlotte will look to back bounce from a Week 1 road loss at Eastern Michigan where they struggled in nearly all facets of the game.
It won’t be an easy task for the 49ers as they will be heading on the road against a Kansas State team that rolled in their opener and moved their way into the AP Top 20.
In a Week 1 game that Charlotte should have been more competitive, they struggled in all facets of the game.
The 49ers turned the ball over 3 times, committed 11 turnovers for over 100 yards, and managed just 280 yards of total offense.
Their quarterback play was poor as Hasaan Klugh completed just 12 of 28 attempts for 114 yards. He was more impressive on the ground rushing the ball 14 times for 101 yards but his inability to throw the ball stalled the 49ers offense.
They did hold the Eastern Michigan rushing attack to only 3.1 yards per carry but were crushed in the passing game allowing the Eagles to average 8.6 yards per pass.
The 49ers will likely try to use the run game to control the pace of the game but will have their hands full against a Kansas State offense that scored 55 points in the opener.
Kansas State Wildcats
The Wildcats finished the season strong last year winning 6 of their final 7 games including a bowl win over Texas A&M.
They picked up right where they left off with a dominating win but it was over FCS Central Arkansas.
The Wildcats moved up to 19 in the Week 2 AP poll and will be relying on quarterback Jesse Ertz to keep up his strong play all season long.
Ertz threw for 333 yards and 4 touchdowns last week on just 16 attempts. He also managed 35 rushing yards as well as the team ran for 186 yards as a team.
Kansas State has been a solid team ATS at home over the last several years. Bill Snyder’s squad is 22-14 ATS at home since the beginning of 2012.
I wouldn’t expect any sort of letdown for the Wildcats as Vanderbilt waits next week and even though they will be better than the Wildcats’ first two opponents, they aren’t really a team to look ahead to.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Pick
Ertz is going to give the Charlotte defense fits but he did that to Central Arkansas last week and Kansas State only won by 36. Charlotte’s offense however struggled to get much going against a much weaker defense last week.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Kansas -36.5
Charlotte struggled in all facets of the game last week against a weaker opponent so this should be a disaster for them. I think Ertz will dominate early and often so take a look at a first half bet for the Wildcats as well.
