They will begin regular season play on August 26, as for the first time in program history, they will take on the West Virginia Mountaineers. That will serve as the home opener for the Colonials for the upcoming season.

They will then take to the road for the next three games against Duquesne, Akron, and the Norse of Kentucky.

Bobby Mo will return home for two games on September 15 and September 18, taking on Xavier and Milwaukee. It is a season of firsts for the Colonials as they will take on the Musketeers for the first time in program history.

After three straight Horizon League matchups against Purdue Fort Wayne, Oakland, and Wright State, RMU will face Cornell for the first time since 2014. That match will be on October 5.

Also, the Colonials on their non-conference schedule will host VMI on October 20 and then will round out their schedule with Horizon League play against Detroit Mercy, Green Bay, and IUPUI.
