Rams defense shows 'Nova why they shouldn't be overlooked

The last time Fordham beat Villanova, Warren G. Harding was the president of the United States. The Rams snapped a 93 year losing streak to the Wildcats with an emotional 27-24 win over the eighth best team in the FCS. The win is hands down the biggest during the short two year tenure of head coach Joe Moorehead and more importantly keeps the Maroon and White undefeated at 2-0.

On the One on One post game report, I talked with the game’s announcers Mike Watts and Nick Logerfo about the keys to success for the home team. Both the guys highlighted quarterback Michael Nebrich’s performance as the redshirt sophomore run for two touchdowns and threw for 190 yards. Our sideline reporter Matt Moro caught up with a joyous Coach Moorehead after the game as he was extremely proud of his squad. Despite Fordham losing starting linebacker Jake Rodriguez to injury, the Rams defense allowed just three points in the second half.

Fordham’s focus now shifts to Philadelphia as the Rams head to the City of Brotherly Love on Saturday to take on the 0-2 Temple Owls. After falling to FBS opponent Cincinnati last year in Ohio, the Maroon and White now knows what to expect when it comes to playing a big time atmosphere.
