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.
After suffering its first loss of the year, Fordham got back on track with a 34-27-homecoming victory over the Cornell Big Red. The Rams trailed 7-6 before their second half offensive explosion.
The Rams came out slow in their third game of the season against the Cornell Big Red, but the offense came out strong in the second half to send the Cornell Big Red back to Ithaca with a loss. Despite scoring only 6 points at halftime, The Rams put 34 points on the board, and held the potent Big Red offense to just 27.

This is the seventh of seven articles that preview the 2012 Patriot League teams. They are in the inverse order of the preseason poll voting by Patriot League football head coaches and sports information directors, who did not include their own school in the selections.
Fordham was not included in the poll because it will not be able to compete for the Patriot League championship and NCAA automatic bid in 2012, and its games against League members will not count towards the final standings for either team.
