CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Charlotte has scheduled its first football opponent.

The school announced Thursday it's agreed to a home-and-home series with Morehead State. The 49ers will visit the Eagles in their first season on Nov. 23, 2013. Morehead State will play at Charlotte a year later on Nov. 22.

It's the first move by athletic director Judy Rose since North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue signed off on a funding bill earlier this month for Charlotte's football stadium. Rose must still hire a coach and try to get the 49ers into a Football Championship Subdivision league.
