--Johns Hopkins leads the all time series between the schools 23-16-1, winning the last six encounters, including a season-opening win in Baltimore last August. The Blue Jays are the defending Centennial Conference champion, reaching the semifinals of the NCAA Division III Footballl Championship before falling to eventual national runner-up Mount Union 28-20.

--Randolph-Macon looks to win their third Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Championship in the past four seasons. Head Coach Pedro Arruza begins his sixteenth season as head coach, capturing 90 victories over that span. The current senior class boasts an overall three-season record of 25-8, including two nine-win campaigns (2016, 2018).

--Tonight will be the first of two non-conference games where the Yellow Jackets will face a preseason conference favorite. The Blue Jays topped the Centennial Conference preseason poll, while Averett University, Randolph-Macon's next opponent on September 14th in Danville, topped the USA South Conference preseason survey. The Yellow Jackets are the preseason favorite in the ODAC.

--Expect temperatures in the 70s at kickoff with a chance of rain and thunderstorms and increasing breezy conditions as the evening continues due to the approach of the outer bands of Hurricane Dorian.
