The Robert Morris Colonials aren’t a good football team, they’re even worse on the road, and their opening loss to Dayton isn’t encouraging.

However, Miami (OH) had serious defensive issues last week against Kentucky and this is a look ahead spot with Cincinnati on tap next week, possibly the biggest game on the RedHawks schedule. Just how motivated will the favorites be? I’ll take a stab with the points.
