Patrick Murray sets record in the process

Fordham traveled to Nippert Stadium in Cincinnati Saturday night trying to beat an FBS team for the first time since Dwight Eisenhower was president, but they were defeated 49-17 at the hands of the Bearcats. A bright spot for the Rams once again was the kicking of Patrick Murray, who set a school and Patriot League record with a 55-yard Field Goal in the 2nd Quarter. Ryan Higgins was an impressive 31-42 with 262 yards passing and a late touchdown to Brian Wetzel.

The Rams kept it close at the half, trailing just 14-6, but Cincy QB Munchie Legaux came out gunning in the second half, finishing with 262 yards through the air and two scores.

The Bearcats continue their undefeated season at 5-0, while Fordham falls to 4-3.
