The 49ers 7-0 start is the best start in school history; the previous mark was 6-0 which was set three previous seasons.
"Tonight's win was a total team effort," said Charlotte coach Alan Major about the Dec. 1 contest. "Everybody contributed to tonight's win. We played with a great deal of energy. The crowd was tremendous tonight and they really gave us a boost."
