Duquesne vs. Robert Morris 2012: Game time, TV schedule, and more

Marvin Gentry-US PRESSWIRE

The Dukes will try to bounce back from a loss to Monmouth when they face Robert Morris on Saturday.

The Duquesne Dukes will try to stay alive in the conference championship race when they face the Robert Morris Colonials in a televised game on Saturday. Duquesne's NEC title hopes took a big hit last week when it dropped a game to Monmouth at home.

The Dukes still have a chance at the NEC crown, as they are two games behind first-place Albany. If Duquesne can get past Robert Morris, it has the two teams ahead of it in the league standings, Albany and Wagner, left on the schedule.

Duquesne will be favored on Saturday, as Robert Morris has just one win in conference play. However, the Dukes should expect a challenge. The Colonials have suffered a number of tough NEC losses, as three of their four defeats were by a touchdown or less.

The game will be the first televised contest for Duquesne this season. Robert Morris' opener against South Dakota State was broadcast on ESPN3.

Game time, TV schedule: 3:30 p.m. ET, ROOT Sports Pittsburgh/ESPN3
