49ers open at #19 Louisville

Charlotte 49ers get set for Louisville

In just its fourth year of existence, and second at the FBS level, the Charlotte 49ers will open the 2016 season in prime time against a ranked opponent.

Charlotte takes on No. 19 Louisville on the road Thursday at 7 p.m.

Charlotte finished 2-10 in its first season at the FBS level, but defeated bowl-bound Georgia Southern.

The 49ers have 15 starters returning.

"It's amazing to me how fast we've gone," said coach Brad Lambert. "We're going on the road on a Thursday night. We've come a long way in a big hurry. It's a huge challenge for us."
