A pair of 2-4 CUSA teams meet on Saturday as the FIU Golden Panthers head into Charlotte to take on the 49ers.
The Golden Panthers currently sit at 2-0 in the conference, while Charlotte sits just a game behind at 1-1 in CUSA play.
FIU Golden Panthers
The Golden Panthers season couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start through the first 4 games.
The non conference slate was not overwhelming by any means, which gave FIU a chance to take a couple wins and set themselves up for at least a 6 win season.
However, that didn’t go according to plan as they dropped the first 4. Then, CUSA play began and the Panthers looked like a new team.
With wins over FAU and UTEP, the Golden Panthers find themselves at 2-0 in conference play, in a 3 way tie for first.
With a lot of work still to be done, the Panthers will have to continue their offensive success that they’ve found in conference play.
The Panthers are scoring just 20.3 points per game, but have 88 points combined in their first two CUSA games.
RB Alex Gardner has set the tone with his run game in the pair of wins. He has rushed for 119 yards and 141 yards, which has allowed QB Alex McGough to find some open lanes down field. Look for them to try and use Gardner early and often here as he has been the recipe to success.
Charlotte became victim to the Hurricane over the weekend, forcing them to a noon kickoff on Sunday.
However, the 49ers certainly came to play on Sunday, as they took down FAU as 13 point road underdogs 28-23, securing their first CUSA victory.
Charlotte’s win put an end to a 3 game losing streak, as the 49ers scored over 20 points for the first time this season against an FBS opponent.
The key to the 49ers is going to be how they slow down the Golden Panthers offensively. FAU was the first team they had slowed down this season (with the exception of non FBS opponent Elon), and they did it with various blitz packages.
Charlotte has conceded 40.7 points against and they’ve really struggled with their pass defense (297 yards per game). With the FIU pass offense taking off over the last two weeks, this is not going to be a good matchup for the 49ers.

Free Week 7 NCAA Football Prediction
This is just not a good matchup for the 49ers.
They’ve struggled defensively and with the Golden Panthers really in stride, the road team has the edge.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: FIU -5.5
Lay the points with the road favorite. Home field doesn’t really factor in here and FIU is playing extremely well when it comes to offensive production.
