The James Madison Dukes and Robert Morris Colonials face off on Saturday in a Week 3 FCS College Football showdown at Bridgeforth Stadium.
The Robert Morris Colonials were up and down during the 2019 season finishing with a 7-5 record overall and during conference play they finished with a 6-1 record. The strength of the team last season was the defense and that should be the case again in this one. There are some players gone from that squad, but this is still a side of the ball that is good. Aniello Buzzacco is a star linebacker and they are going to need him to be a playmaker in this game. On offense, Robert Morris is a run first team and the star of that side of the ball should be Alijah Jackson who is undersized but can still be the best back for this team.
On the other side of this matchup is the James Madison Dukes who have high expectations for this season and they looked good in the first game of the season. James Madison faced off with Morehead State in the first game of the season. The offense was elite putting up 52 points and that was enough to come away with the victory. At quarterback Cole Johnson led the way throwing for 142 yards and a touchdown. This is a run first team for James Madison and they have four different players who are averaging 68 points. Percy Agyei-Obese was the star of the show finishing the game with 13 carries for 166 yards and a touchdown.
James Madison is the better team and they are going to have no chance to keep this game close. Look for the Dukes to run up the score and that will bethe difference as James Madison comes away with a cover of the spread.
