MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich.– While Robert Morris football’s spring season will commence tomorrow against James Madison, their first confirmed non-conference opponent for the 2021 fall season has been announced. The team will be traveling to Central Michigan for a date with the Chippewas on September 11.

The Mid-American (MAC) conference announced their teams’ full schedules on Friday.

Last season, the Chippewas finished 3-3 overall, playing their entire season against MAC opponents.

This season, RMU did not play a fall campaign, instead deciding to spend the spring as an associate member of the Big South Conference before becoming a full member next season.

Last season, RMU played to a 7-5 overall record, including a 6-1 record in-conference, their best under Bernard Clark and best since the 2010 season when they finished 7-1.

RMU will play at JMU tomorrow as well as at home against Monmouth on March 13, at Charleston Southern on March 20, at Kennesaw State on April 3, and finally, return home to host Gardner-Webb on April 10.

This will be the first time the Colonials and Chippewas face-off as RMU heads to Mount Pleasant for the first time as well. The time for this game is TBA.
