The Robert Morris football team has announced its non-conference schedule for the fall 2021 season. So far, they have scheduled three games to begin their campaign, in addition to their inaugural Big South fall conference play.

The opponents they will face in their non-conference matchups are the Dayton Flyers, Central Michigan Chippewas, and the Howard Bison. Their matchup against Central Michigan will mark the second time the Colonials will play an FBS team in their team’s history. The other FBS school was the Buffalo Bulls, who the Colonials played on August 29, 2019. The Bulls defeated the Colonials 38-10 in the game.

If you are looking to catch these games for next season, here are the confirmed dates for these matchups. They will start non-conference play on the road, traveling to Dayton on September 4 for a date with the Flyers. They will be on the road again on September 11 as they take on Central Michigan.

The Colonials will welcome in the Howard Bison on September 25, and barring any additions to the schedule, they will move into conference play.

The Colonials are 0-2 at this point in the season. They suffered both losses on the road, first to no. 2 James Madison by a score of 36-16, and the second game to no. 7 Kennesaw State 35-0.

The Colonials will play against Charleston Southern tomorrow at Noon at Buccaneer Field and will wrap up the season against Monmouth at Joe Walton Stadium on April 19th.
