What to Know

The Middle Tenn. Blue Raiders are on the road again Friday and play against the Charlotte 49ers at 6:30 p.m. ET Sept. 24 at Jerry Richardson Stadium. The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close game.

The Blue Raiders came up short against the UTSA Roadrunners last week, falling 27-13.

Meanwhile, it was all tied up 7-7 at halftime, but Charlotte was not quite the Georgia State Panthers' equal in the second half when they met last week. The 49ers fell to Georgia State 20-9.

The losses put Middle Tenn. at 1-2 and Charlotte at a reciprocal 2-1. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: Middle Tenn. is 237th worst in the nation in rushing yards per game, with only 54.3 on average. Charlotte has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the contest with the 237th most rushing yards allowed per game in the nation, having given up 266 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
