The 49ers will play a 16-game conference schedule, facing off with Fran Dunphy's Owls in Charlotte and Philadelphia. They'll play the other 14 teams once. Highlights of the home schedule include a bout with former CAA darling Virginia Commonwealth, as well as a visit from the Xavier Musketeers. Charlotte will also avoid tough road games at UMass and Saint Joseph's.
