Yesterday afternoon, the Big South Conference announced revisions to the 2021 spring football schedule, which includes games that affected the Robert Morris schedule.

RMU recently had their home opener on March 13 against Monmouth canceled due to COVID-19 issues inside the program. That game will now be played on April 17 at Joe Walton Stadium.

The Colonials were originally slated to square off against Charleston Southern on Saturday afternoon but the contest has now been moved to Saturday, April 10 in Charleston.

Before the series of cancellations, the Colonials faced off against the now top-ranked team in the FCS in the James Madison Dukes. RMU fell in that game 36-16.

If there are no more cancellations on the Robert Morris schedule, they will travel to Kennesaw, Georgia to take the Owls of Kennesaw State on April, 3 at 1:00 p.m.
