PHOTO GALLERY: Charlotte Wins in Dramatic Come From Behind Fashion

Charlotte scored 32 second-half points and outscored North Texas 18-3 in the fourth quarter to stage its come-from-behind victory. The 49ers trailed by 14 entering the fourth quarter. This was the 49ers' largest fourth-quarter comeback against an FBS opponent. 

Charlotte set a school record for total yards of offense against an FBS opponent: 589. This is the fourth game this season that Charlotte has put up at least 500 yards of total offense. Charlotte had individual season-highs in passing (Chris Reynolds, 336), rushing (Benny LeMay, 155) and receiving (Victor Tucker, 140).
Charlotte tied a school-record with a 99-yard touchdown drive (8 plays; 4:05) on its opening drive of the second half.  The drive was capped by a 52-yard TD pass from Chris Reynolds to Tyler Ringwood. It is the third 99-yard drive in school history. Key play in the comeback came with Charlotte trailing by 8, 35-27 midway through the 4th quarter Charlotte blocked Ethan Mooney's 43-yard field goal attempt. It is the first blocked FGA by the 49ers since 2014.
