One of those nights: Not much goes right for Charlotte 49ers in first shutout loss

Even the good plays went horribly wrong for the Charlotte 49ers in their 28-0 loss Saturday night to Georgia State at Richardson Stadium. Trailing 14-0 early in the fourth quarter, Charlotte’s Tommy Doctor blocked a Georgia State field goal. The ball fluttered in the air for several seconds, and
