Coach Joe Moorhead's message last year to his team always including going 1-0 that week. So far this year, that's exactly what his team did. Despite the fact that star wide receiver Sam Ajala missed today's game as did linebacker Stephen Hodge, the team stepped up to bring home a 52-23 victory. Chase Edmonds was the star of the game for Fordham, replacing the graduated Carlton Koonce in the backfield. Edmonds put up 181 yards on the ground and two touchdowns in his freshman debut. Mike Nebrich had a solid day going 11 for 26, with 188 yards and 3 touchdowns.

The 6-foot wideout played his last two years of college ball at Fordham after transferring from Diablo Valley Community College. Wilson scored four touchdowns in each of his two years and had over 1,000 receiving.

Today’s game was not for the faint of heart. Fordham saw their 17-7 lead in the 3rd quarter disappear right before their eyes, as Bucknell went up 21-17 as the third came to a close. But the Rams rallied back, thanks to a Mike Marando field goal, to give them a 23-21 lead with eight minutes to play. It was a long eight minutes as the final 60 seconds alone featured turnovers, penalties and a blocked field goal, but Fordham hung on for the victory.

Fordham Sports Information

Fordham outlasted Columbia Saturday afternoon 20-13, claiming its third consecutive Liberty Cup title. In the 11th renewal of the Cup, it was the Rams defense who came up big near the end on Lions QB Sean Brackett. A key penalty against Brackett occurred when he threw a touchdown pass on fourth down with under 2 minutes to go, but his foot was over the line of scrimmage and Fordham regained possession and ran out the clock.
