RMU football had yet another game canceled.

MOON TOWNSHIP– After a COVID-shortened 2021 spring season, the Colonials will have their fall opener postponed against Dayton. The game was supposed to take place tomorrow at noon in Dayton, but due to positive tests within the RMU program, the game was canceled.

This comes after two games last year were also postponed due to COVID issues, losing their matchups with Gardner-Webb and Monmouth with several postponements involved.

The Colonials will take the field next week in Mount Pleasant, Michigan when they take on the Central Michigan Chippewas. If that game is also canceled, the Colonials will take on Howard for their home opener on Sep. 25.
