2013 football schedule nearly complete

Three home football games for Charlotte's first season of 2013 have been added -- Chowan on Sept. 7, UNC Pembroke on Oct. 12 and North Greenville on Nov. 9.

The 49ers also just added a home-and-home series against its most prestigious opponent to date --Furman --  for '14 and '15.

Charlotte has 10 games scheduled now for 2013. It has open dates left on Sept. 28, Oct. 19 and Nov. 16.

So the '13 schedule has now taken shape. The 49ers will play their first three games at home on their on-campus field against Campbell, Chowan and N.C. Central, before traveling to Old Dominion for their first road game on Sept. 21.

The 49ers are hitting the Big South (three games) and non-scholarship Pioneer League (two) hard.

Here's how it breaks down by classification so far (seven vs. FCS teams, three vs. Division II teams).

NCAA FCS teams (formerly 1-AA): Campbell (Pioneer League), N.C. Central (MEAC), Old Dominion (CAA), Gardner-Webb (Big South), Charleston Southern (Big South), Coastal Carolina (Big South), Morehead (Pioneer).
Note: N.C. Central was an independent in 2010 but moves to the MEAC next season).
NCAA Division II: Chowan (CIAA), UNC Pembroke (independent), North Greenville (independent).

David - What are the thoughts to what conference the school is angling to get into for football/basketball purposes? I guarantee there are feelers out there...what are they? Colonial would be a solid fit, but a slight decrease for basketball purposes. I guess they could split the two revenue sports, but the attractiveness of just the football would only get them in Big South, I'd imagine.

Big South, Southern, and Colonial. Intent is to keep other sports in the A10.

App St will be FBS in CUSA by then and not playing return games at FCS schools.

Just ask any of their fans.

I hear Peace and Meredith have some openings. Perhaps Statesville High has an opening.

Very good schedule for a division one start up. Can't play big boys right out of box. Plus scheduling in October and november is nearly impossible.

App has 11 teams scheduled in 2013, out of conference is Montana and Georgia. App has one opening in 2014.
