Changes made to Charlotte 49ers football schedules

Charlotte announced a few changes to their football schedules in 2013 and '14.

The 49ers have dropped North Greenville and will instead play Division III Wesley (Del.) on Nov. 9, 2013. Wesley is ranked third in the Division III this year's preseason poll. Charlotte also moved a home game against Old Dominion from Sept. 21 to Nov. 16. That makes Sept. 21 Charlotte's bye week.

In 2014, Charlotte replaced a home game against Georgia Southern on Oct. 25 with Old Dominion. The 49ers will also play Wesley at home on Nov. 15 instead of Furman. Charlotte now has two bye weeks (Sept. 20 and Oct. 18) in 2014.

Some of these changes come as a result of Charlotte having to shuffle its still-incomplete 2015 schedule as it moves to the FBS and Conference USA that year. Charlotte will have to play at least five home games against FBS teams in 2015.
