The plays

Stanford Steve (2-3 last week, 17-11-2 overall)

The Bear (4-0 last week, 14-11-1 overall)


Charlotte 49ers at Florida International Panthers (-5.5, 61)

Stanford Steve: The 49ers are off a bye week, and the Panthers are fresh off a win over UMass. Both teams are looking for their first win in conference play. Charlotte is 0-4 vs. FIU, losing the past three by a total of nine points, which includes two one-point losses. The 49ers' new regime under Will Healy leads C-USA and ranks in the top 30 in FBS in scoring at 35.8 points per game and rushing yards per game at 219. They also have had great success when getting to the red zone, scoring 14 TDs on 17 trips. I think the 49ers can win the game, but we'll take the points.
