The Rams' dream 12-2 season comes to close with a 48-28 loss against Towson in the second round of the FCS playoffs.
Last Saturday's victory over the Sacred Heart Pioneers, 37-27, marked the first time the Fordham Rams won a playoff game at Jack Coffey Field. In advancing to the second round of the FCS playoffs, the Rams improved to 7-0 at home and 12-1 overall, both are now Fordham records. Fordham Head Coach Joe Moorhead hopes the team can continue their record shattering season. He sat down with Mike Watts and Nick Logerfo to recap and analyze this home playoff win.
When the Fordham Rams vanquished Sacred Heart yesterday, only the football ramifications were obvious.
Behind an offensive outburst in the first half, and an impressive second half defensive performance, the Fordham Rams (12-1) defeated Sacred Heart (10-3) in the opening round of the FCS Playoffs, 37-27.
Fordham (3-2) scored one of the biggest wins under Tom Pecora, a tightly contested road victory over rival Manhattan College (3-2).
Fordham typically plays well at the Rose Hill Gym, which made it all the more shocking to see the Rams (2-2) fall to previously winless Sacred Heart (1-4) on their home floor.
Jack Coffey Field was silent a mere two weeks ago when starting quarterback Michael Nebrich left the Bucknell game with a knee injury. Today, the Fordham fans cheered once again as he returned to the field. The Rams fell last week without Nebrich, but the offense took off with his return, marching 65 yards in under two minutes to give Fordham an early 7-0 lead this afternoon.
They would not look back.
Fordham scored four touchdowns on their first four drives of the game, and when all was said and done, the team racked up 8 trips to the endzone.
After being embarrassed by Hofstra last Friday night, the Fordham Rams made a major early season statement with a 84-63 victory over the University of the Pacific.
The Fordham Rams lost for the first time in the 2013 campaign, falling 27-14 to Lafayette (4-6). Head Coach Joe Moorhead talks about the end of the perfect season with Mike Watts and Nick Logerfo. He also discusses the five turnovers on offense and the inability to capitalize on the four turnovers the Rams caused on defense.
