The Richmond Spiders started the season with a convincing win over Jacksonville just before Labor Day Weekend before struggling with Boston College a week later.
Elon, on the other hand, is the No. 25 team in the Football Championship Subdivision and is coming off a close win over the Citadel after falling just short against North Carolina A&T.
Richmond owns a 7-2 lead in the series between the two programs but has lost the last two meetings. Richmond is 4-8 all-time in CAA openers and just 1-8 since 2010.
The game will be broadcast live at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14 on NBC Sports Washington Plus.
