The Charlotte 49ers have their first football opponent for their first season of 2013.
Charlotte will play at Morehead State on Nov. 23, 2013. The 49ers and Eagles will play a return game in Charlotte's planned on-campus stadium Nov. 22, 2014.
"The formal announcement that we are starting football in 2013 with no uncertainty was very exciting," 49ers athletics director Judy Rose said in a statement. "We quickly moved forward to begin scheduling and we are off and running. There are many more games to schedule, including our inaugural game, but it's exciting that we have our first contract in hand."
Morehead State, located in Morehead, Ky., is a non-scholarship NCAA Football Championship Series program that plays in the Pioneer League, the same conference in which Davidson plays.
The Eagles were 3-8 last season (losing 16-10 to Davidson).
Morehead State's basketball program plays in Division I's Ohio Valley Conference.
