BLOG: Niners look ahead to the future!

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Basketball and football are front and center for the Charlotte 49ers these days. It certainly has the University looking to the future!

The Niners football program is on the eve of their very first Conference USA Media Day taking place in South Florida Wednesday.

They're excited to talk about their inaugural season at the highest level of college football, the Bowl Division. And they're also pumped about the upcoming season on the hardwood.

The 49ers released their upcoming "basketball" schedule Tuesday. It features 16 home games including a match-up in December against Georgetown.

Also in December they have a showdown with cross town rival Davidson on the 2nd... It's a new era for the Niners program with the loss of a couple of guys who have transferred out of the system, but they've signed some new players ready to embrace it.

New Head Coach Mark Price called the schedule tough and challenging!

Now all that's left to say is "let the games begin!"
