MIDDAY CFB TOP PLAY #7
Charlotte 49ers (0-1) at Florida Atlantic Owls (0-0)

I mentioned this play on the Drive Thru show, and I still stand behind it. Charlotte battled App State tough and has had a game to shake off the rust even if the 49ers have had a couple of postponements since. The break’s allowed Charlotte QB Chris Reynolds to get healthy, and that’s a big step as the 49ers hung around and Reynolds can only get better than his 11 of 30 passing game against App State. FAUhas yet to take the field, and as much as the rust is a concern, so is the fact that there are a lot of transfers that will need time to gel on the field. I think Willie Taggart will be fine with his FAU team and this should be an Owls squad that contends for a bowl game, but I think Charlotte takes advantage of a lack of chemistry on FAU’s side and narrowly edges the Owls here so I’ll take Charlotte on the money line as my premium pick for this game.
