The Robert Morris University football team is looking forward to another Homecoming weekend, when the Colonials take on the Lafayette Leopards under the lights at Joe Walton Stadium. This will be the Colonials second night game ever played at Robert Morris.

Last week, the Colonials had a bye week after another loss against Dayton, Ohio. (14-20). Fortunately, Jeff Sinclair, the Colonials starting quarterback, finally joined the team on the field. He had a decent start and took his team to a close finish but came up short. Sinclair completed 10-of-27 attempts for 176 yards, and threw for two touchdowns, but also threw two interceptions. Donte Jeter (junior) and Paul Evans (senior) had the two touchdowns for Robert Morris. Jeter also broke his 113 receiving yards record.

The Lafayette Leopards are undefeated this season so far and they haven't started out 3-0 since the 2008 football season. They already pulled wins off against William & Tribe, the Pennsylvania Quakers, and the Bucknell Bisons.

The Colonials need to score when they have opportunities to do so if they want to beat the Leopards. Also, they need to catch passes and secure them. The last couple of games, the Colonials had a tough time doing that.

Last year's Robert Morris University's Homecoming game was very successful on the field and in the stands. The Colonials had the biggest crowd in RMU history. Robert Morris pulled out a win and the fireworks shot off in the celebration of an outstanding homecoming game. Hopefully, this Saturday night will have a similar outcome.
