Key Games

2/11 @ Bucknell: Robert Morris opens the season on the road against Western Pennsylvania rival Bucknell. Playing each of the past two seasons since renewing the series, Bucknell won last year’s game 14-12 while Robert Morris won the 2021 meeting 8-7.

3/11 @ High Point: The Colonials and Panthers have met each of the past eight seasons and during that time, put together a pretty competitive and interesting season. High Point has taken each of the past two meetings, including a 13-11 win last spring. With the offenses both of these teams have featured the past few seasons, another close meeting between these two can be expected.

3/18 vs Jacksonville: Robert Morris opens ASUN play by welcoming in the Jacksonville Dolphins.  These two programs have played seven times in history with the Colonials leading the series 5-2. Their last meeting was in 2021, which Robert Morris won 16-15. This meeting between these two will be a crucial ASUN matchup and could also see a lot of offense with the talent both squads have.

4/8 vs Utah: 4/8 @ Robert Morris: Robert Morris faced their old coach, Andrew McMinn, and the Utah Utes twice last season. The Utes took that first contest 18-8 in blowout fashion. However, three weeks later, the Colonials took down the Utes 18-17 in a high scoring ASUN title game. This will be one to circle on the ASUN schedule for sure.
