Stockstill leads team into the record books in rout of Charlotte

MTSUFootballvs49ers

MURFREESBORO – The Charlotte 49ers (2-1) traveled to Murfreesboro, Tennessee to make their Conference USA debut against the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders (2-1) on Saturday evening.

The Blue Raiders spoiled the 49ers chances of starting 3-0 for the second straight season by putting on a scoring clinic putting up 73 points, the second most points in a single game in school history.

The Blue Raiders started the game with a three-and-out, but came back with a vengeance on their second drive. Redshirt freshman quarterback Brent Stockstill found redshirt junior tight end Terry Pettis for the 76-yard strike, a career long for them both, and the scoring didn’t stop there.

“The safety was dropping, and they were leaving nothing but the linebacker to chase me down the field, which is just not gonna happen,” Pettis said when asked about the coverage on the play. “I came in [to college] as a wide receiver. You put a linebacker on a wide receiver, it’s a mismatch.”
