The Tulsa Golden Hurricane will host the Charlotte 49ers for an AAC matchup this weekend from Chapman Stadium on ESPN+. 

Charlotte 49ers Preview

Charlotte dropped to 2-6 after losing to Florida Atlantic at home, 38-16. The Niners failed to match the Owls’ energy offensively, and they’ll look to avoid another lopsided defeat here in Tulsa. The Charlotte offense is scoring 40.4 ppg, while passing for 166.1 ypg, rushing for 143.3  ypg, and converting 22.6% of their third downs.

Charlotte Player Notes

Jalon Jones and Trexler Ivey split snaps again last week in the loss to FAU, and it’s honestly one of the things hindering the offense, as the unit lacks a true identity.

• Jones, a Richmond, VA native, does lead the rushing with 485 yards and four scores, but he hasn’t been able to do much thru the air, totaling 623 passing yards with two touchdowns to four interceptions over seven games.

• Sophomore wideout Jack Hestera leads Charlotte in receptions (30) and receiving yards (300). 


Tulsa Golden Hurricane Preview

Tulsa fell to 3-5 after being drilled by SMU in Dallas, 69-10. The Golden Hurricane were at the Mustangs mercy for four quarters, and they’ll attempt to regroup here at home. The Tulsa offense is scoring 23.7 ppg, while passing for 176.8 ypg, rushing for 143.3 ypg, and converting 42.3% of their third downs.

Tulsa Player Notes

• Cardell Williams managed to toss a touchdown pass before exiting early again last week against SMU, which means Braylon Braxton may be called upon again. The Frisco native struggled last week, but he played well versus Rice, and should see similar results here with Charlotte. 

Anthony Watkins gained 60 yards in the loss to SMU, and he leads Tulsa in rushing with 446 yards on 119 touches. 

• Freshman wideout Devan Williams leads the team in receptions (25) and receiving yards (372).

• The Tulsa defense is allowing 35.8 points per game.


Charlotte vs Tulsa Trends

CHA is 4-4 against the spread, with a 3-5 O/U record. 

TUL is 3-5 ATS, with a 3-5 over/under record.

Corey’s Free Pick

As scrappy as Charlotte may be, their issues on the offensive side are alarming, and they may find trouble here in Oklahoma. There isn’t much else positive on Tulsa’s side either other than the fact that they will be on their home turf, and that may honestly be the biggest factor. Both offenses are truly a mess, and show little signs of improving at this point in the season. This may just be the stinker of the weekend, so if you’re betting on it, go ahead and roll with Tulsa to come away with a victory at home, with a hard eye on the Under.
