We are back tracking the Niners and their opponents this season. It is a little too early to look at the RPI this season, so we’ve included the final RPI from last season. Conference USA went 20-12 in Week 1. Charlotte will travel to Clemson on Tuesday and return home to face Army this weekend.

A couple of notes for the week:

  • Infielder Austin Knight was named C-USA Hitter of the Week. He batted .467 with an OPS of 1.326, 2 Doubles, a HR, and 8 RBI.
  • Charlotte drew 50 Walks in Opening Weekend and currently lead the nation. Kaden Hopson leads the country with 9. The Niners broke a school record for walks last season with 371.
