The Robert Morris hockey team’s 2014-15 schedule, released Friday, will be highlighted by the third annual Three Rivers Classic and the Colonials’ first outdoor game.

Robert Morris will face Bowling Green Jan. 3 as part of the Toledo Walleye Winterfest at Fifth Third Field in Toledo, Ohio.

It will be the first outdoor game for either team and the second in Ohio.

The Colonials’ 35-game slate opens Oct. 4 with Ryerson visiting 84 Lumber Arena.

The Colonials will again be host to the Three Rivers Classic Dec. 29-30 at Consol Energy Center. The four-team field includes fellow returning participant Penn State as well as Western Michigan and Colgate, which finished the 2013-14 season ranked No. 13.

Last year’s Three Rivers Classic saw then-No. 7 Boston College defeat the Nittany Lions, 8-2, in the tournament final. Robert Morris and Penn State will again square off in the opening round.
