There are 11 current FBS teams that have never won a Bowl Game, and two of them are facing off on December 20th, in the Bahamas, to get off that list.
For Buffalo this is the programs fourth Bowl Game, and their second played outside of the United States.
For Buffalo this is the schools third straight year of Bowl eligibility, they sat home at 6-6 in 2017, then played in the Dollar General Bowl last season. Last season UB took a three point lead into the fourth quarter but were upended on a surge by Troy.
Charlotte is also without a bowl win, then again the 49ers are going to their first ever Bowl game.
The school didn’t even have a football program until 2011. They were quickly gobbled up by Conference USA in 2012, when realignment left the CUSA looking for new members.
They moved up to the FBS officially in 2015 and took only four years to become a winning team. Last winter Will Healy was hired to take over the program and spent all year setting firsts for Charlotte.
